Light and creamy cod perfectly poached in herb-flavoured milk.
This fish may sound fancy, but it’s deceptively simple. You may even have all of the ingredients in your house – other than the fish. The combination of milk, onions, mustard, lemon, garlic, and spice, give this cod a lovely light flavour.
Poaching is a perfect, healthy way to make fish. Unlike some poaching methods, this fish is cooked in the oven. There’s no need to stand over the stove, you can simply set the timer, put it in the oven, and walk away (just not too far away). Before you know it, the fish will be ready. Be prepared for a mild, flaky fish that will melt in your mouth.
