Poached salmon is one of those classics, like roast chicken, that needs no update, no reinvention. I like this dish best served at room temperature, but it would taste great warm or cold. Tarragon is an underused herb. Its slight licorice, herby flavor is the perfect complement to the poached salmon and would also be a great dressing for any steamed spring vegetables.
A great twist on a traditional London Broil!

Don’t be scared off if you aren’t a coffee lover – the coffee flavor is not overpowering and blends in wonderfully with the steak spice and brown sugar to make an incredible compliment to the beef.
