Poached Trout Recipe

3 cups water
1 cup white wine (a wine you would enjoy drinking)
1 celery rib, chopped
1 carrot, peeled, and chopped
1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 bay leaf
6 peppercorns
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 pound trout fillet
1 lemon, sliced

Combine water, wine, celery, carrot, parsley, bay leaf, peppercorns and salt in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes. Add trout and simmer, partially covered, for 10 to 12 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork at the thickest part. Remove fish; set aside and keep warm. Strain poaching liquid and return to pot; bring to boil and reduce by half. Serve fish with reduced poaching liquid and sliced lemon. Makes 3 servings.
