I never liked salmon until I made it this way. It also doesn't leave a fishy smell in your kitchen. I am now a fish lover!

How to Make Perfectly Poached Salmon


  1. Use electric vegetable steamer that has a timer.If steamer is too small, may have to do 2 batches, but works great for serving 2. I use 2 lemon slices per salmon filet.
  2. Place lemon slices in bottom of vegetable tray. Place sprigs of dill onto each lemon slice. Place salmon on top. Salt & pepper to taste. Set timer to 20 minutes. Serve immediately.
