This was just delicious Kim and SO easy. I prepared this with haddock and followed directions exactly. I covered the fish with the cold water, vinegar and salt and set it over high heat. After 10 minutes it hadn't come to a boil yet, but was quite hot and the fish was adequately cooked. We don't like overcooked fish so I felt it was time to serve and I was right. We all liked it very much. I don't think I'd cook it for the full 10 minutes after the boil. Thanks for posting this delicious, easy, quick recipe....it's a keeper for sure :)
