Poached salmon and arugula with creamy tarragon dressing step by step
- Add the first 8 ingredients plus a tablespoon of salt to a pot wide enough to comfortably fit the salmon. Add 2 cups of wine and enough water so that the fish will be submerged when put in. Turn the heat on high and bring to a boil..
- Carefully lay the salmon into the pot, skin-side down. Turn the heat down to medium-high and let poach for 7 to 8 minutes, then take the pot off the heat. While you wait for the salmon to cool, make the dressing..
- Add the butter to a small saucepan on medium-high heat. Once melted, add the shallots and garlic. Let sweat for 2 minutes..
- Add the remaining cup of wine to the saucepan. Allow to simmer until there's only 2 tbsp of liquid remaining. Take off the heat and let cool to just above room temperature..
- In a bowl, stir together the lemon zest, mayonnaise, shallot mixture, tarragon, milk and a pinch of salt. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve..
- Once the salmon has cooled to room temperature, cover with plastic wrap and put it in the fridge to cool further..
