Poach Fish In Milk For Tender, Flavourful Results

Milk is great for taming fishy odours while cooking, but it’s also a fantastic poaching liquid for sturdy fish like halibut, salmon or tuna.

According to Bon Appetit, the high fat content of milk quickly draws out the flavours of whatever herbs or seasonings you’re using, making for an intensely flavoured, almost “chowder-like” piece of fish. Just make sure you use something that will hold up to poaching, like the fish mentioned above, and shy away from delicate, super flaky fillets that tend to fall apart easily.
