Garlic Butter Poached Fish

I have spent many years of my life being on or near a coast so I always had access to fresh seafood. I love Idaho but sometimes being in a land locked state makes it difficult to obtain fresh seafood. It can be a pain but that doesn’t stop me from coming up with some great ideas for the bounty from the sea. A few years ago I poached a lobster tail in butter and used the tail for Lobster mac n cheese. It was really amazing but I haven’t poached anything in butter since. I don’t know why I haven’t poached since but this garlic butter poached fish made me wish I had done this sooner. Cooking fish this way is so simple I believe I could even teach all the teenagers how to do this. Yes, I said all of them. Even the one that goes by Landon who has a hard time making ramen noodles. The type of fish to use is really up to you. I found some nice rockfish that I thought would be perfect to poach. What you really what is a firm white fish such as bass, halibut, tilapia, or cod. Poaching may sound like it is difficult but it really is one of the simplest ways to cook a fish. Season fish, melt butter and add herbs or spices of your choice and poach. It really is that simple and it tastes amazing.
