  • Summary

    Fennel, lemon, herbs, and white wine create a flavorful broth, often referred to as court-bouillon, for poaching halibut. To maintain a clear cooking liquid, the aromatics are bundled between a halved leek.

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound small Yukon gold or red bliss potatoes, peeled
    • 3 3/4 teaspoons coarse salt
    • 10 cups water
    • 1 bottle dry white wine, such as Chablis or Sauvignon Blanc
    • 2 fennel bulbs, trimmed, cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick wedges, fronds reserved
    • 1 lemon, cut into 1/4-inch slices, plus 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
    • 3 sprigs fresh flat-leaf parsley
    • 1 bay leaf
    • 1 medium leek, white and pale-green parts only, halved lengthwise and rinsed well
    • 4 halibut fillets, skinned (each about 1 inch thick and 6 to 7 ounces)
    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
