  • (2) 5-ounce Salmon portions, patted dry of any excess moisture
  • Kosher Salt
  • ⅓ cup White Vinegar

  2. Carefully add salmon portions into simmering water.
  3. Turn down to medium heat (a low simmer) and cook for 5-6 minutes.
  4. Check for doneness by gently pushing the flat side of a wooden skewer through the thickest part of the fish. If it goes through with no resistance, it is done. If there is resistance, cook for another minute or so and test again.
