Poached Fish With Vegetables
What You Need:
  • 3 pound fish (filleted hake, brill, halibut or sole)
  • A few mushrooms
  • ˝ oz butter or margarine
  • Pepper and salt
  • 1 leek
  • ˝ a lemon
  • ˝ a head of celery
  • ˝ pound eels or 1 pint mussels
  • 1 carrot
  • Several parsley roots
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 bay leaves
  • About 1˝ tablespoons milk
  • A sprig of thyme
  • A little flour

  • How To Cook:
    1. Prepare the fish, scaling and filleting it as required, and wash it in cold water. Prepare the vegetables and cut up finely, as for a Julienne garnish.

    2. Butter a fireproof dish or a saucepan, put in the vegetables, and cover with greaseproof paper and the lid. Put in a hot oven (450°F) for 2 minutes and then turn the heat to very low; allow the vegetables 15 minutes in all, or until they change color, but do not let them become brown; stir occasionally.

    3. Wash the parsley roots and put them in cold water with the fish bones; add the bay leaves and thyme, bring to the boil, and simmer 5-10 minutes.

    4. Cut the fish in 2-inch pieces, grease a fairly deep fireproof dish, put in the fish, add the mushrooms, sprinkle with seasoning, add the lemon juice, and poach in a moderately hot oven (400°F) until the fish starts to boil - 7 - 10 minutes.

    5. If the vegetables are in a dish, transfer to a saucepan. Strain the fishbone liquor over them. If eels are used, cut into 2-inch pieces, put into 1 cup of boiling salted water and simmer 10 - 15 minutes.

    6. If mussels are used, wash and clean them, put in a pan with a stick of celery and a sliced onion, and toss over a brisk heat until the shells open.

    7. Add the eel or mussel liquor to the vegetables and boil gently, uncovered, until the vegetables are tender - 15 - 20 minutes. Meanwhile take the mussels from their shells and remove the beard and "core."

    8. As soon as the fish is cooked, take it from the oven, add the cooked eels or prepared mussels and keep hot. Beat the egg yolk, add the milk and sufficient flour to bind, pour over the vegetables, stir in well and bring to the boil; pour this sauce over the fish and serve at once.
