Using this method of poaching salmon in olive oil at a low temperature in the oven will result in extremely tender and succulent fish. While poaching is a classic technique, it is typically done with a light broth rather than olive oil. Just wait until you see how the olive oil poached salmon flakes off with a fork and stays incredibly juicy. You won’t want to cook salmon any other way.
The salmon is paired with a light lemon and arugula herb salad with pickled onions to contrast the smooth texture of the salmon and rich flavor.
This is a great recipe choice for summer because it’s inspired by farm to table ingredients that are light, refreshing and bursting with flavor. The dish can be re-imagined for a brunch twist by serving the poached salmon over Greek yogurt-slathered bread and topped with the pickled onion and fennel fronds.
