Asian-Style Poached Salmon

Quite often, we cook fish in the oven, in a pan, or on the barbecue. Today, I suggest that you try poaching (also called the court bouillon method). This method consists in cooking the fish in a simmering cooking liquid, i.e., that is kept just below its boiling point. I hope you will like it!

1. In a pan, bring the chicken broth to a boil. Add the salmon, green onion, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, rice vinegar, lime zest and juice, and salt and pepper.
