Dukan Clean Out the Fridge Salmon

Clean Out The Fridge Salmon or Salmon Poached in Wine
We had an uncle in town the other weekend, so not much cooking again.  We did host a family dinner and made our Dukan Asparagus Chicken which was a hit.  We made it with chicken tenderloins and we definitely prefer chicken thighs for this recipe.  Our uncle made a fabulous salad...we will post the recipe later, but it's NOT Dukan!  It made a nice treat though.

The night before he arrived we were trying to clean out our fridge knowing he would be bringing over his salad ingredients so the leftover white wine and stuffed olives turned our salmon into a quick but tasty dinner.

If you are following Dukan rules to a tee, you probably won't want to use this much wine in your cooking unless you're well into Consolidation or in Stabilization.  This is something we probably would have made during Cruise though.  It's still low in fat.

Serves 2 (without any type of carb)
Prep time: 5-10 minutes
Cook Time: approximately 10-12 minutes

1 1/2 lbs. salmon filet, we cut ours into 4 pieces
3/4 c.  dry white wine
1/4 c. water
1/4 c. stuffed green olives
1/2 t. adobo seasoning (the garlic powder type, not canned chili type)

You'll be poaching the fish.   We used our stir fry pan which is small on the bottom and allowed the liquid to just cover the fish.  Add wine, water, olives and adobo seasoning to the pan and bring to a boil.  Turn heat down and simmer the fish in the wine mixture until cooked.  We like our salmon slightly undercooked.  Cooking time will depend on how thick your salmon filets are.  Check them periodically.  If this is a Celebration meal for you, go ahead and use more wine.

Enjoy...we sure did!
