Why limit poached salmon to buffets or brunch? You'll find this tasty poaching broth a useful addition to your repertoire. Cooked in a delicious broth like this, high-quality wild fish becomes even more extraordinary (The poaching liquid will work with and enhance a mild, firm white fish such as cod or halibut.)You can store the flavorful broth, known as a cort boullion, for months in the freezer or use right away. (Cort bouillon translates roughly as “short broth” because the cooking time is fairly brief.)When you use canned roasted peppers, the dressing takes about 5 minutes to make. Sherry vinegar gives the dressing a distinctive flavor, but balsamic or red wine vinegar will also work well.
