Simple Poached White Fish
Servings: 2
Prep time: 20

Poaching is a great way to cook fish when you are feeling under the weather. This simply made dish of poached white fish is a great option when you need something that’s easy to digest, full of nutrients and is hassle-free to make. Eat it with a little plain boiled rice as suggested below, or some steamed baby Yukon Gold or fingerling potatoes.


  1. Add the leeks, bay leaf, lemon peel, peppercorns, and salt to a small pot.  Pour in 2 cups of water and bring to a boil.  Cover and simmer over medium-low heat for 20-30 minutes.
  2. Reduce the heat to low and add in the fish.  Add more water if the fish is not covered by at least 2/3rds.  Cover, bring to a boil, and turn off the heat. Leave to steam on top of the stove for about 7-10 minutes or until the fish is opaque.  Carefully remove the fish with a slotted spoon and, if desired, drizzle with a little olive oil. Eat with Basic White Rice and steamed vegetables.
