Preparation

Sprinkle the salmon fillets with a little salt. Place the wine, water, dill, parsley and onions in a sauté pan, and bring to a simmer on medium heat. Place salmon fillets, skin-side down on the pan. Cover. Cook 5 to 10 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillet, or to desired done-ness.

Serve sprinkled with freshly ground black pepper. The salmon can be served warm, at room temperature or cold. The biggest mistake people make when cooking fish is to overcook. Watch the cooking carefully to ensure that this does not happen.

Have the rest of your dinner prepared before you start cooking the salmon and serve immediately, as soon as the salmon is ready.
