Poach your salmon with beer in three easy steps.
Sometimes the simplest technique can render the most wonderful layered effect. That’s why we adore the art of poaching, especially with beer. This “keep-it-simple” cooking method demonstrates how a little beer can quickly transform everyday ingredients into a delicate and delicious dish. It adds depth and flavor to this tasty, fragrant fish. For another layer of flavor, we serve it with Saison Mayonnaise, but if the mere mention of homemade mayonnaise causes you to break into a cold sweat, don't worry. There's nothing to fear with this ridiculously easy recipe.
Active Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
For the saison mayonnaise (makes 1 cup)
Suggested Beer Pairing: The age-old rule of "serve what you cook with" certainly applies to this dish. A saison or Belgian-style white beer will beautifully complement the flavors of the poaching liquid.
