Although crispy fish can certainly be a treat, poaching it is just as desirable. It results in a moist, tender, and flaky fillet because there is little loss of moisture during the cooking process. Sriracha is the recommended hot sauce for this recipe.

    Cooked this one for second time. Really good. Will be cooking again for sure. Used Gochujang sauce insted of Seracha. Worked out well but may add a little more next time.

    Would other cuts of fish work? My wife does not like salmon, but does like most whitefish.
