DIRECTIONS

  • Put first 7 ingredients in blender and process to a puree (use some of the broth if necessary).
  • Add this puree to the rest of the broth in a wide heavy based pan (you will be poaching fish in this pan), bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer 5 minutes.
  • Taste now for seasoning, adding salt/soy if necessary.
  • Optional Extra Step: Sear fish pieces in a separate very hot saute pan in some butter or oil--no more than 30 seconds each side (This adds color and flavor, but isn't strictly necessary).
  • Add fish pieces to simmering (it should be bubbling when you add fish) liquid and poach on slightly lowered heat, turning once, about 5 to 8 minutes total (depends on type and thickness of fish and if you have seared it).
  • Do not overcook!
  • Remove fish and serve in a platter, with sauce poured over the fish.
  • Sprinkle with garnishes.
