White Tea Poached Salmon

Serves 4
Time 20 min
In Asian countries, poaching salmon in green tea is a common cooking technique. Here, we bring a variation to this tradition by poaching the fish in mild white tea. Use the poaching liquid to make a delicately flavored sauce to complement the richness of this fish. Serve with steamed rice and Swiss chard.
