Nothing is more impressive than a side of poached salmon, and few dishes are easier. Our method has but three ingredients and will work every time; you donít even need a special fish-poaching pan. Try it with any sauce of your choice, such as Remoulade or the classic, Dill Sauce.

1. Set a roasting pan, a disposable aluminum pan or fish poacher over two stove burners. Add salmon; pour in enough water to cover salmon by 1 inch. Add salt and vinegar. Bring water to a boil over high heat; turn heat off and let salmon stand for 30 minutes.
2. Using 2 large spatulas, carefully transfer salmon to a serving platter. Serve warm, or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled.
