Poached Salmon

This is Scott's favorite way to cook salmon. He's been making this for years ... and it was paleo all along! It always turns out wonderful. Hope you enjoy!

Salmon filet (cut into 4oz portions)
The following ingredients are approximates!
1 shallots, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 T capers
1 tsp ground black pepper
pinch celtic grey sea salt (optional)
2 T lemon juice
2 T white wine
2 tsp. olive oil

We were able to get about 4-4oz. portions out of our filet. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place fish on their own individual piece of aluminum foil. drizzle a tad (maybe 1/2 tsp) olive oil over each piece of fish. Sprinkle with black pepper, sea salt (optional), shallots, and capers. Add a splash of lemon juice and white wine. (Some fresh parsley would be good, too). Seal up the fish tightly in it's own aluminum foil. Bake for about 15 minutes.
Serve with your choice of sides! Spinach or asparagus are usually our favorites with this dish. Tonight, it was steamed yellow squash.
