Poaching salmon in white wine produces a moist, flavorful result. Broccoli and carrots, poached with the salmon, add to the flavor and the resulting sauce. Sauteed grape tomatoes complete the dish.

To save on cleanup, Use the same pan to cook the salmon, vegetable medley and tomatoes.

All that's needed is a quick-cooking rice to finish the fast and easy dinner. I use brown rice that can be microwaved in 1 to 1½ minutes, depending on the brand.

You will need ¾ cup for each serving; save the rest for another use.
