Yuki's Tip 

  • For the salmon fillet, you can choose to leave the skin on or off. 
  • You can poach the salmon in vegetable or chicken stock with lemon or parsley and bay leaves.
  • Try the recipe with other types of seasonal fish like sea bream, seabass or even scallops. Chicken also works well with this citrus sauce.
