A friend in New York gave this recipe to me years ago--and when I am looking for a nice (but not too complicated) fish dish, this fits the bill.

2 1/2 Tbsp
fresh lemon juice
2 1/2 Tbsp
olive oil, extra virgin
1/2 tsp
1/4 tsp
freshly ground pepper
1/4 c
flat leaf parsley, chopped
thick cod fillets (4-5 oz. each)

How to Make Poached Cod with Lemon Parsley Sauce


  • 1Combine everything but cod in bowl and mix. Set aside.
  • 2Bring 6 cups of water to a boil in a large saucepan, then gently lower the cod into the water (one fillet at a time) and bring the water back to a boil.
  • 3Reduce the heat to low and poach the fillets in barely simmering water for 3-4 minutes (they will be just cooked through).
  • 4Using a slotted spoon, lift the fish from the pan, drain, and place one fillet on each of 6 warmed dinner plates. Gently press the fish with a spatula or fork in order to make it separate just a little on the grain of the fillet.
  • 5Add 2 T of the hot poaching liquid to the lemon juice mixture, slightly beat and spoon the sauce over the fillets. Serve.
