Poached Curry Cod w/ Veggie Slaw

Advanced Plan

Serves 4

Poaching is a simple cooking technique that produces a very tasty, delicate flavor that is perfect for a light white fish like wild-caught pacific cod.  The contrast of the cold, crunchy slaw is delightful.

2 cups free range organic chicken stock
3-4 tablespoons curry paste (green or red but green will result in a milder flavor)
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
4 wild caught pacific cod

For slaw:
1 organic yellow bell pepper, sliced thin
1 small shallot, sliced thin
1 can bamboo shoots, drained and sliced thin
1 red fresno chile, seeded and sliced thin
1/2 cucumber, sliced into matchsticks
Handful snap peas, sliced thin
2 tablespoons lime juice or apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
fresh ground black pepper to taste

Put stock, curry paste, garlic cloves, and ginger in a saucepan and heat to boiling. Reduce heat and add fish then cover and simmer for 8-10 minutes or until fish flakes with a fork.

Combine vegetables with the lime juice, olive oil, and salt and mix well to combine.

Put fish in a shallow bowl and ladle the extra poaching liquid over it. Top with veggie slaw.
