Instructions:

Place all the ingredients except ½ the lemon and salmon in a large sauce pan, and fill with water to 4 inches deep. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 30 minutes. Remove all the vegetables, lemon, parsley and black peppercorns. Return to a simmer, then add the salmon and simmer gently for about 8-10 minutes, depending on thickness.
