Poaching fish

I was wondering if there are any good fish poaching recipes. I was thinking of using those oven bags and pooching the fish in some sauce.

The oven bag should work fine. I like to poach salmon filets with grated ginger and garlic, scallions and some soy sauce and white wine. You could add a dash of sesame oil too.

I never use bag when poaching salmon. I guess I did not know you need one. Go figure, live and learn. What does bag do? I poach plain and add some salt, dill and some lemon juice or some sauce latter.

Actually Charlie, if you're using a bag or parchment/foil to make a pouch, you cook it in the oven. Technically it's not poaching, you're steaming.

I found the following on poaching fish. The recipe looks delicious. But then you know me and seafood.

Okay, I LOVE FISH. I really, really do. I'll eat pretty much any species. I like perch, salmon, trout, crappies, snapper, tuna, arctic char, sea bass, and even fishy fishes like mackerel.

And I enjoy them pan-fried, steamed, broiled, grilled, blackened, deep fried, and baked.

But I do not like poached fish. Poaching does nothing but cook all the delicate fat out of the fish and turn it into a dry, flavorless lump of meat. Even in restaurants, I've never had good poached fish.

The one exception I'll note is a few years ago when I had butter poached lobster. That was delicious. But that isn't your normal poaching. Maybe it should be, though.

I bought a commercial version of what you propose a few months back. Salmon fillets packaged in a plastic bag with a sauce, then frozen. They were fine thawed and cooked in the bag. Your idea should be fine.

I would think any sauce typically used with salmon would work.

As long as they are in season, it isn't poaching!

Growing up we only poached perch fillets for poor man's "shrimp" cocktail. I think you could use the technique with any mild tasting fish.

We poached the perch fillets in a frying pan with a tight fitting lid in about an inch of water that had been seasoned, when the water came to a boil we set if back to a simmer and slid the fillets into the pan, covered it and waited 2 or 3 minutes until they were opaque. We removed them from the pan and set them in a covered casserole that had been lined with paper towel and chilled them until serving time. We served the poached perch with a cocktail sauce made from ketchup, prepared horseradish, lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce.
