The Cooking In Sanity Project: Fish Filets Poached in White Wine, Filets de Poisson Poches au Vin Blanc

Hey everyone!

Today on the Cooking in Sanity project I decided to make fish poached in white wine.  This recipe was very simple to make and, although I am not the biggest fan of fish, ended up being delicious.  The fish had a delicate flavor that was very refreshing.  And don’t worry – the alcohol content from the wine cooks out by letting it poach!  Here’s my video on how I cooked it:

The full recipe can be found in Mastering the Art of French Cooking (2 Volume Set). I think every good cook deserves to have a copy of Julia Child’s masterpiece in their kitchen.

Thanks for watching and I’ll see you next time!

The Side Dish:  Lizzie's dad and I are busy bees behind the LMC scenes  supporting Lizzie with her projects and helping her voice be heard through LMC.  As our family stepped into her Cooking In Sanity Project, we feel her audience will enjoy her parents' perspective of recipes.

This recipe was a perfect example of how some conversations surround a dish.

Dad: What's Lizzie making today?

Mom: Fish.

A frown appears on Dad's face.

Dad:  How many fish recipes are in the book?

Mom: It's a pretty short chapter, only 12 master recipes. There are two lobster recipes and a handful of mussel recipes...

At this point Dad has a slightly disgusted look on his face.

Dad: I will not be eating any shellfish.

Mom: Not even a little taste, for the sake of your daughter?

Dad: For the sake of my daughter, no, not even a taste.  I don't eat shellfish because they are not healthy.

Mom: Well, we'll buy healthy shellfish.

Dad shakes his head no.

After Lizzie cooked the poached fish, mind you this is fish and not shellfish, I asked Dad to try a bite.

Mom: Try a bite of the fish, it's delicious.

Dad carefully considers his response.

Dad: I'll try some later.

Dad dodged the first fish dish.  Funny guy he is. ;-)
