Poached salmon with dill mayonnaise & lots of vegies


  • Put the fennel, carrot, red onion, celery, wine, seasonings and a few sprigs of dill in a deep sauté pan (or large heavy-bottomed pan) with water to cover. Bring to the boil and cook for about 5 mins, adding more water if needed. 
  • Then place the salmon on top of the vegies, in one layer, and add the frozen corn and peas, burying them in the liquid. Turn the heat down and gently simmer for 5 mins, turning after 2½ mins. Then remove the pan from heat, cover and set aside for another 5 mins.
  • Combine the mayonnaise with the lemon juice, mustard, sour cream and 1 tbsp chopped dill.
