Serves 2

Make the meal in this order:
  • Bring water for pasta to a boil.

  • Make pasta.

Poached salmon with chive sauce
3/4 lb skinless bonless wild Alaskan Salmon fillet
1 teaspoon butter (optional: if you prefer, use all oil instead)
1 teaspoon olive oil or macadamia nut oil
1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Salt and freshly ground pepper
3 tablespoons snipped fresh chives (or 1 tablespoon freeze-dried chives)

  • Fill a pot large enough to hold the salmon with water and bring it to a boil. Lower the heat to medium-low and submerge the fish completely. Cook at a gentle simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and let the salmon rest in the liquid for 3 minutes.

  • Melt the butter in the microwave (20‒30 seconds). Add the olive oil and lemon juice. Transfer the salmon to a serving plate. Drizzle with the butter mixture and season to taste with salt and pepper. Scatter the chives on top.
