• Poaching is an easy and hassle-free method of preparing fish and can be carried out in a number of ways.
• You must never allow the fish to cook in boiling liquid as this will break the fish into pieces and destroy the structure.
• Due to the fact that the fish is being cooked in a liquid, poaching is an excellent method for leaner, less oily types of fish, as moisture is retained during the cooking process giving the fish a succulent flavour and texture.
• When poaching fish, it is necessary to keep the fish covered in liquid at all times throughout the cooking period.
