Dietary Concerns

from "The Great American Eat-Right Cookbook" by Colleen Doyle and Jeanne Besser

Poaching, a no-fat method for cooking, imparts subtle flavor while retaining moisture. This is especially critical when preparing seafood, where overcooking can dry out the fish and ruin it. Another benefit: poached fish is just as good served chilled.

Although poaching intimidates a lot of cooks, it shouldn't. No special equipment is needed, just a skillet large enough to hold the fish in a single layer with a tight-fitting lid. This salmon can also be seared in a lightly oiled nonstick pan and topped with the salsa.

Add or substitute other fruit into the salsa, including peaches, papayas, or, for tartness, fresh cranberries.

Mangoes can be a challenge to cut because they have a large, flat seed that sticks tenaciously to the fruit. Using a sharp knife, cut the fruit vertically, sliding the knife along the seed on one side. Repeat on the other side to create two large pieces. Then cut away as much of the remaining meat as you can. Remove the peel after cutting.

In a bowl, combine mangoes, bell pepper, 2 tablespoons lime juice, onion, cilantro, and jalapeño. Taste and add additional lime juice if necessary.

In a deep skillet large enough to hold the salmon in one layer, combine clam juice and lemon slices. Simmer for 5 minutes. Add the salmon, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes, or until cooked through.

Top salmon with salsa.
