MzMaggie's Poached Salmon

The brown sugar allows the fish to caramelize beautifully! The combination of the lemon juice and white wine is even more awesome - flavor goes to the bone. Enjoy!


  • 4 medium-size 1 inch-thick salmon steaks
  • 1/2 cup good quality dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon dill


  1. Combine lemon juice, white wine, brown sugar, dill and garlic in a skillet. Bring mixture to boil and simmer for a few minutes allowing it to reduce by half.
  2. Place salmon steaks and clamp lid down. Cook for about 4 minutes on each side.
