This is not a drink recipe! It's whitefish poached in vermouth and it's delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat a large, dry skillet; toast almonds, stirring, until golden-brown, about 2 minutes. Do not overcook. Remove from skillet; set aside.
  2. Heat water, vermouth and 2 teaspoons salt in skillet to a simmer. Add fillets; simmer until fish just turns opaque and flakes easily, about 5 minutes. Remove fillets; add salt and pepper to taste. Top with butter, almonds and parsley; squeeze lemon juice to taste.

Hey Jude, this is marvelous! Very simple and one of the best fish recipes we have ever had. I made it just as written, using half vermouth and half white wine. The fish was roughy. Superb! Thanks so much for posting. Janet
