Salmon with Fennel
This is one
of my husband's favorite meals and I consider it the ultimate poached salmon recipe.
I was inspired by watching Ina Garten bake a whole 10 lb. salmon using fennel
and orange on one of her episodes and was intrigued by the flavor combination.
This is a recipe that I've been "perfecting" since. This recipe uses
salmon filets, not whole salmon. Poaching the salmon in the tasty orange marinade
assures it stays moist. Like
Ina's original recipe, this left over salmon (if there is any) makes a fantastic
salad for lunch the next day.
