Poaching is a delicious technique when applied to fish. Simmered lightly in dry white wine, this halibut is delicate, flaky, and flavorful. A drizzle of chive butter adds a rich finish. Paired with crisp green beans and boiled red potatoes, this makes a lovely balanced dinner. If you prefer to use another type of fish, choose a firm fleshed white fish like mahi-mahi or swordfish.
