i need to lose 15-20 lbs…trying to eat healthy. so I make a lot of fish. mostly salmon ( i know, not the most dietetic of fish!!). tonight i bought steelhead trout, which is very similar to salmon. i believe it comes from california. they belong to the family salmonidae which includes all salmon, trout, and chars…the flavor is a bit fuller than salmon, more gamey, not in a bad way…i’m glad i poached it…it is a nice clean way to cook fish. i like to eat it simply… with a bit of fresh lemon or just a drizzle of soy.
if you like to poach fish, a poacher is great. I love mine…i use it often. I fill it 1/4 way with water then i add a cup or so of white wine..slice some onion, lemon a bay leaf some pepper corns (this is called a court bouillon)…add the cleaned fish. set poacher across 2 burners and cook for about 15-25 minutes or so (check often). so easy.
the broccoli rabe was excellent. really, it was, this one is a keeper. i started by washing and roughly cutting the leaves…added them to boiling salted water for just a minute or 2. drained them and added them to an ice bath. sauteed garlic, pine nuts and raisins salt and pepper add the greens back to the pan!…yum!!
