How to Make It

Step 1

Stir the cornstarch and 1/4 cup broth in a small bowl until the mixture is smooth.

Step 2

Heat the remaining broth, dill weed, black pepper, carrot, celery and onion in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the vegetables are tender-crisp.

Step 3

Add the fish to the skillet. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Remove the fish from the skillet, cover and keep warm.

Step 4

Add the cornstarch mixture to the skillet. Cook and stir until the mixture boils and thickens.  Serve the vegetable mixture with the fish.

    Poached Fish Fillets

    I like the light taste of this dish. I didn't make the cornstarch mixture, but served the fish and veggies over rice instead. I've made this many times, and my extremely picky 3 year old even eats it!

    Poached Fish Fillets

    Great idea but the veggies and fish were fairly bland. Recommend adding a half-pinch salt or up the dill. Also the presentation would look better if peas and mushrooms were added to the veggies (color, shape, and texture is a plus!).
