I made this recipe, a while ago and improvised my way through it. When I completed it, I looked for the recipe online. I had never poached salmon before and wanted to be reassured, I was doing something acceptable. The truth is, that at the point, it didn’t matter. We had eaten the salmon and it was delicious. It seems lighter when it is poached. It picked up the soy flavor but lightly. I think, I added a little honey, one teaspoon, but I am not positive. I know, I would add it, if I made this again. I like a little sweetness when I use soy.
ground black pepper
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon chopped onion
Season the top of salmon lightly with black pepper.
