This is one of the most popular dishes we serve in the restaurant, and justifiably so! The combination of cool, perfectly poached fresh salmon, crunchy watercress sprigs, and tangy herbal vinaigrette is a knockout.

If taste weren’t enough, another beauty of this dish is that everything short of the final assembly can be done in advance.

Whereas most markets display salmon cut crosswise into steaks, see if you can instead purchase a small side of salmon.
