Here acornfresh would like to introduce a famous Italian fish dish called Acqua Pazza. The literal translation of this dish is “fish in crazy water”.

While many don’t know where the name comes from, we can only guess it’s because who would have thought fish poached in a water-based sauce could be so delicious!

200g Cod (or other recommended fish)
3 cloves of garlic
100g Onion
200g Tomato
1 dried chilli
1 bunch Basil
100g white wine or cooking wine
Salt and olive oil

1. First sauté the onion, add the garlic and chilli, then the tomato and wine

2. Reduce the wine by half, cooking the alcohol and leaving all the flavor

3. Add water, then simmer to reduce by about half to finish the sauce

4. Place the fish on the sauce. It will mostly sit above the liquid level. Cover with a lid or baking sheet or aluminum foil

5. Poach until the fish is just cooked, with no raw parts but retaining optimum moisture. This will take about 6 minutes

6. Stir the herbs into the sauce and enjoy!

This cooking method is excellent for extracting the maximum flavor from a simple dish. The flavors of the fish add depth to the sauce. It is the purest form of fish stock, and the fish itself absorbs the flavor of the sauce ingredients.

These fish recipes work great whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned chef. It’s always a good choice to sear fish for a quick and simple yet delicious side dish, or you can opt for the more advanced versions where you can play around with different flavors and side dishes.

This is just the starting point for many other delicious fish recipes, like Grilled Fish in Lemon Butter Sauce, Creamy Tuscan Salmon, and more. Be on the lookout for more fresh acorn recipes to enhance your next at-home cooking experience!
