Olive Oil Poached Salmon on Laurica Farms Greens with Lemon Vinaigrette

3 cloves of fresh garlic, smashed

1 small bunch of fresh thyme

1 lemon, peeled with a veggie peeler

2 bay leaves

4 wild BC salmon filets

Kosher salt & pepper to taste


In a sauté pan, add the olive oil and bring the pan to medium heat. Add the aromatics and let them simmer in the oil for about 5 minutes to start to infuse the oil.   Add the salmon filets to the pan & let the salmon poach for about 15 minutes over medium heat – the oil should be a simmer, you are not deep frying. When the fish is cooked through, remove with a fish spatula and allow the oil to drain.  Season the cooked fish with salt & pepper.  Serve the warm salmon fillets with your freshly dressed greens.
