Here, vegetables, aromatic herbs, and wine combine to make a savory broth that infuses salmon fillets with a wholesome flavor and leaves out added fats and oils.
Combine carrots, leeks, lemon slices, thyme, parsley, bay leaf, peppercorns, coriander, salt, and wine in a wide saucepan. Add enough water so the liquid reaches a depth of 1 1/2 inches. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to barely simmering. Add salmon, cover with a lid or a parchment paper round trimmed to fit, and cook until flesh is firm but slightly moist in center, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer fish to a plate; cover with plastic wrap. Cool to room temperature. Serve with Lemon-Caper Herb Sauce and Watercress-Cucumber Salad, if desired.
