Citrus-Poached Salmon With Mustard Sauce Recipe


  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • ½ cup white wine
  • 2 oranges, divided
  • 2 lemons, divided
  • 2 limes, divided
  • 2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 2 fresh dill sprigs, plus 1 tablespoon chopped dill, divided
  • 1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
  • 4 (5 oz) salmon fillets, skin removed
  • coarse salt, to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon whole-grain Dijon mustard
  • ½ tablespoon (1½ teaspoons) smooth Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar
  • 2 cups cooked rice


  1. Before beginning, juice one of the oranges, one of the lemons, and one of the limes into a small bowl. Slice the remaining orange, lemon, and lime into wheels.
  2. Pour the vegetable broth and white wine in a wide, shallow skillet or pot. Add the orange, lemon, and lime juices, the sliced fruit, garlic, dill sprigs, and peppercorns.
  3. Cover and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove the lemon, lime, and orange slices and dill sprigs and reserve.
  4. Season the salmon with salt and pepper.
  5. Add the fillets to the saute pan; the liquid should come up halfway.
  6. Cover and simmer over medium-low heat (you don’t want it to boil) until the salmon is barely opaque in the center, about 6 to 8 minutes.
  7. Remove the salmon and add to a large serving dish.
  8. Take one cup of the poaching liquid into a separate small pot, discarding the rest of the liquid. Simmer over medium heat until it reduces by half, about 10 minutes.
  9. Whisk in the butter, whole grain and smooth mustard, agave, and chopped dill.
  10. Pour the mustard sauce over the salmon before serving add the reserved lemon, orange, and lime slices to the plate. Serve with cooked rice.
