I need to poach salmon on the stovetop for someone who can't have any oil (hence the poaching.) I've tried it a few times, and the flavor is good, but the fish turns very stiff and hard. The salmon I use has been previously frozen, if that makes a difference. (Of course, I thaw it before cooking.) Has anyone had this problem? What am I doing wrong?
