Recipe: Cider Poached Salmon with Pear & Ginger Sauce
This recipe comes together in 15 minutes! It’s the perfect Autumn meal – something warm and saucy without spending a lot of time in the kitchen. I use a Salmon seafood spice blend from The Spice & Tea Exchange to give the poaching liquid a lot more flavor, which translates into a super-delicious and highly flavored sauce. File this one under easy, comforting, AND healthy!
1 cup chicken broth
2 cups Apple Cider
1 teaspoon Northwest Salmon Rub*, or to season (optional)
1 pear, peeled cored and sliced
1/4 cup candied ginger, coarsely chopped
1 pound Atlantic Salmon fillet, cut into 4 equal pieces
Salt and pepper, to season
*Available through The Spice & Tea Exchange.
Combine the broth, cider, pears, ginger and seasoning in a rimmed skillet with a lid and bring to a boil. Let the mixture boil for about 2 minutes for the flavors to marry. Turn off the heat and place your salmon into the poaching liquid. Cover the skillet and let the salmon poach for about 5 minutes or until just cooked through. Adjust your time up or down depending on the thickness of your salmon. Transfer the salmon to a warm platter and cover loosely with foil.
Using a slotted spoon transfer the pears and ginger to a blender or food processor. Add about 1 cup of the poaching liquid and process until smooth, adding a bit more of the poaching liquid if the sauce is too thick. Take care to vent the lid when processing hot liquids. To warm the sauce if necessary, place in a small pan on stove top and heat through. If sauce is too thin, boil sauce while whisking until the sauce thickens.
Place the salmon on a warmed dinner plate. Dress with sauce and serve immediately.
