Peppers may be roasted on a stovetop, on a grill, or under the broiler, depending on your preference. Remove from the heat, transfer to a medium-size mixing basin, cover with plastic wrap, and let to steam for 10 minutes before serving. When the skins are cold enough to handle, pull them off and discard them. Return the mixture to the bowl and stir in the olive oil, thyme, and garlic. Allow for 30 to 45 minutes of marinating time.
Step No. 2
In the meanwhile, in a small saucepan, add 1 quart water, white wine, onion, lemon, dill, peppercorns, and salt; bring to a boil. Bring the mixture to a boil, then decrease the heat to a low simmer. Poach the salmon for 8 to 10 minutes, depending on how thick it is. Remove the bouillon from the courtroom and place it away. It is possible that the salmon will be cold at this time.
