2 Celery stalks (chopped)
2 Medium Onions (chopped)

1 Whole Lemon (sliced into 1/4” pieces)
1 1” Piece Ginger (peeled and sliced)
6 Cups Water

Ginger Sauce:

1 cup Water
1/2 cup Honey
1/2 cup Lemon juice
1.5 Tbsp Soy Sauce
2 Tbsp Vinegar (Rice, Cider or White Wine vinegar)
1/4 cup Poaching Broth

  • Start by making the poaching liquid first. In a medium to large stockpot, combine the wine, celery, onion, carrot, lemons, ginger and water. Bring to a boil, then allow the pot to simmer for 15-20 mins.
  • Next, make the sauce to have it ready. In a small sauce pan over medium heat, heat the ginger with the water until boiling. Turn the heat down to medium low, and cook until the water has evaporated (about 5 mins). Then, stir in the honey, lemon juice, soy sauce and vinegar. Reduce this sauce by a 1/3 over medium low heat, until it is slightly syrupy.
  • Reserve the sauce.
  • Now, strain the poaching liquid carefully into a bowl. Discard the vegetables, etc...Return the poaching liquid to the same pot. Bring it to a boil, add the salmon fillets and turn the heat down to a simmer. Poach Salmon in the broth for 5-6 minutes.
  • Using a slotted spoon or spatula, transfer the fillets to the plate. Garnish each salmon fillet with the ginger sauce.
