Poached Salmon with Creamy Lemon Sauce
1 1/3 pounds salmon fillet, skinned
3 lemon slices
1/2 cup sour half & half
1 tablespoon minced green onion
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
Grated peel of 1/2 a lemon
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon celery seed
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
Cut salmon fillet into 4 servings; rinse under cold water. Measure the thickness of the fillets at the thickest point. In a 10 inch skillet bring 1 cup of water to a boil; add salmon and lemon slices. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes per inch of fillet thickness. If fillets are less than 1 inch, reduce cooking time proportionally. Meanwhile, combine remaining ingredients in small saucepan. Heat through, but do not boil. Carefully transfer cooked salmon to plate. Spoon sauce over salmon.
