Poaching is a healthy and easy way to cook tender fish, such as the salmon shown here. In a shallow pan, place the fish on a bed of aromatic ingredients, such as leeks or fresh herbs, add a few ounces of vegetable broth and some herbs. Cover loosely and gently simmer on the stove top. Cook 4 to 6 minutes covered. Poaching time will vary with the amount of fish being poached and the thickness.
