Poached fish is actually one of my favourite ways to have fish (unless it’s battered and served with chips n mushy peas eaten out of the paper!)


  • 2x Salmon Fillets
  • 1x 500ml Court-bouillon
  • ½ Lemon - Sliced


Step 1

Bring your poaching liquor to the boil, then reduce heat to a good gentle simmer. Now place your fish in with the sliced lemon and cover with a tight lid.

Step 2

Turn down the heat and simmer for about 2-3 minutes until fish has completely changed colour. Do Not Boil!!! A gentle simmer at about 95 degrees is all you need.

Step 3

Remove from heat and stand for 5 minutes - N.B. the fish will cook as it cools.

I just like cooking great food..
