My first foray into poaching fish (Salmon with Yogurt Curry Sauce) was such a success I decided to branch out.
This poached halibut recipe is mild, lovely and features fennel, which is one of my favorite flavors. Halibut is a great fish to add to your diet. It is high in omega-3 fatty acids. However, since it is a large fish, its mercury levels can be high. It is recommended that pregnant women and nursing mothers limit their halibut consumption to once a month.
