This was really delicious and very simple. Really did not think it would be so lovely! Thanks!
Excellent simple and wonderful!
Hi Elise, I made this last night, 6 Feb for my wife and I, absolutely brilliant, yet simple recipe. I used shark catfish, which is a whitefish taste, not at all like catfish, spot on perfect. Thanks you for a great recipe.
Made this for the first time a few months ago, and hubby (a steak and fried foods man) now asks for it once a week. Super easy to make any night of the week, delicious, light but filling – a perfect meal.
I’m so glad you liked it Sarah!
This is my go-to weekday meal when I don’t feel up to anything elaborate. I cook for one and halve this. Steamed veggies or a salad on the side for some green and this is a delicious, quick meal I can feel good about having instead of takeout.
So simple and elegant. I can’t wait to try it. I have done salmon in Court Bouillion but never tried cod this way. Thanks, Elise!
Hi Elise, love your recipes! Do you think this recipe would work with Tilapia? I am not a fan of cod.
Hi Rivka, I think tilapia might be too delicate, but it’s worth a try!
I cooked tilapia and it was delicious! Thank you :)
What would you recommend as a variation for those not too fond of bay leaves? Thanks!
A sprig of thyme would work great.
Fancy salted water – love how you simply/clarify dishes, and make them look so delicious and healthy. I was wondering if it would be wise to cook the potatoes at the same time as the fish, removing the fish earlier when it is done? Thank you.
Not sure I would put the potatoes in with the fish – it would risk starch depositing on the fish surface. Not very appealing when the dish is so simple. Fine if it was a casserole or fish stew, but poaching? I don’t think it would be optimal.
If you are worried about the fish cooling, you could always put it on a plate on top of the potatoes for the last 5 mins and cover with foil while the veggies finish cooking.
