another fresh seafood idea

Many people think that poaching is a mysterious and difficult way to cook.  In reality, poaching is one of the easiest cooking methods. And it certainly produces some of the most delicious fish you’ll ever eat.

Combine ingredients for poaching liquid in fish poacher or large, shallow pan. Bring to boil. Reduce heat, partially cover and simmer for 30 minutes. While liquid is simmering, prepare Dill Sauce.

Place fillets in liquid, submerging entirely. Poach until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, about 15 minutes. Gently remove to serving platter. Spread Dill Sauce over fish. Serves 6.

Dill Sauce:

In small bowl, combine sour cream and mayonnaise. Add dill, garlic, lemon juice and pepper and blend well. Spread on hot fish.
