I have a new cookbook--A Seafood Celebration. It is a fabulous book that really teaches you everything about cooking fish. It also contains lots of great recipes including sauces, salsas, etc. Since the book was such a bargain I feel I want to share some of the recipes with you. Today I am going to send you two recipes for poaching fish. If you have any questions regarding poaching fish, please e-mail me and I will try to find the answer for you. Poaching fish is a wonderful and healthy way to prepare fish. Mary Curtis
In a 12-inch saute pan, bring all the ingredients except the milk to a boil over medium heat. Lower the heat and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes. Add the milk and simmer for 10 minutes more. Strain, pressing the vegetable and herb solids against the strainer to extract as much liquid as possible.
This milk-based court boullion is best for poaching delicate-tasting white-fleshed fish such as cod, haddock, and halibut. After using it, reduce it by half and freeze it to use as a base for veloute or other sauces.
