" Poached fish is always lovely and moist. You can't go wrong if you serve it with your favorite sauce. Salmon Cod or Sea Bass lend themselves well to poaching. You will need a skillet with a tight fitting lid and high enough that it can accomodate a rack to place the fillets on."

What a great way to cook fish!!! I used fresh chopped rosemary instead of dill and parsley and it was just fabulous. Made for the Alphabet Soup Recipe Tag Game.
