Delicious Recipe - Poached Salmon with sauteed cabbage

I found this recipe in Everyday Food from Martha Stewart and I love it. It is a great healthy dish, very simple, easy to make and it is delicious!!!

Poached Salmon
2 carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 celery stalk, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 small onion, peeled and halved
1/2 lemon, thinly sliced
coarse salt
4 skinless salmon fillets (6 ounces each and about 1 inch thick)

Directions: In a large deep straight-sided skillet or heavy pot, combine carrots, celery, onion, lemon, 1.5 teaspoons salt, and 6 cups water. Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer, cover and cook 8 minutes. Season Salmon with salt and gently lower into simmering liquid (liquid should just cover finish). Reduce to a very gentle simmer. Cover and cook until salmon is opaque throughout, about 5 minutes (longer thicker fillets). Using a wide slotted spatula, remove salmon from l liquid.

Sauteed Cabbage
Melt 1 tbsp of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Stir in 1.5 pounds of green cabbage, cored and shredded. Add 1 teaspoon coarse salt and 1/4 cup of reduced-sodium chicken broth. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until cabbage is tender, about 10 minutes. Uncover and cook off any excess liquid if needed. Stir in 1 tbsp chopped fresh dill. Serve with Salmon and lemon wedges.
