Ingredients:

Citrus-Poached Salmon with Dijon Mustard Sauce

  • 2 1/2 cups vegetable broth
  • Juice of 1 seedless orange, plus 3 slices
  • Juice of 1 lemon, plus 3 slices
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 fresh dill sprigs, plus 1 tablespoon chopped
  • 1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
  • 4 (5-ounce) wild salmon fillets, skin removed
  • Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon whole-grain Dijon mustard
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons smooth Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon honey or agave nectar

Directions:

In a wide, shallow skillet on medium-high heat, pour in vegetable broth. Add orange and lemon juices, citrus slices, garlic, dill sprigs and peppercorns. Cover pan and bring liquid to a full boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; continue to simmer for about 15 minutes.

Season salmon generously with salt and pepper. Place fillets in pan (the liquid should come up halfway), cover and simmer over medium-low heat until salmon is barely opaque in center, about 6-8 minutes. Remove salmon; set aside.

In a small pot, pour 1 cup of poaching liquid; discard the rest. Simmer over medium heat; reduce liquid by half. Whisk in butter, mustards, honey and chopped dill; season with salt and pepper if needed. Pour mustard sauce over fish before serving.

Serves 4.
