Salmon is one of the best sources of omega-fatty acids. It also provides valuable minerals, while fresh salmon in particular supplies copious amounts of niacin.

Ingredients
Serves: 4 

  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 carrot, thinly sliced
  • 6 whole black peppercorns
  • 750g salmon fillet, in one piece, skin on
  • 1/4 cup low-fat mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
  • 3 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh chives

Directions
Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Bring 3 cups water to the boil in a large frying pan over moderate heat. Add the onion, carrot and peppercorns and reduce to a simmer. Slip in the fish, skin-side-up; cover and simmer for 8 minutes or until the salmon is just cooked through. Cool in the poaching liquid. Reserving 2 tablespoons of the poaching liquid, lift the fish out, transfer to a platter, cover and put aside. Discard the remaining poaching liquid and the solids.
  2. Whisk together the reserved poaching liquid, the mayonnaise, sour cream and lime juice in a medium bowl. When well combined, stir in the basil and chives.
  3. Remove the salmon skin and cut the fillet into 4 portions. Serve the salmon with the sauce spooned on top.
