Poached Fish

READY IN: 16mins
Recipe by Bergy

This is one of my favorite ways to cook fish. Add a lovely sauce it is so moist and tasty. I like to poach Salmon, cod and sea bass. There are many sauce recipes here on Zaar or serve it plain with a dab of butter. I like to use a lightly greased rack so the fish is just above the water, espcially if it is a skinless filet

We enjoyed this fish. I used fresh dill from the garden and left out the vermouth. Thanks.
