3 1/2 Oz Cod filet
3 1/2 Oz Shrimp
2 Cup Fennel, thinly sliced
2 Celery stalks, cubed
1 Leaf of red swiss chard, largely sliced
1 Lime slice
1 Garlic clove
1 Jalapeno pepper
2 Tbsp Lime juice


step #1

Fill a medium sized pot halfway with water and bring it to a boil. Once it's boiling, add the celery stalks, lime juice, jalapeño pepper, and garlic. Back off the heat and let it simmer. This will serve as your court-bouillard, or "short broth," perfect for poaching.

step #2

Add fennel and Swiss chard to the pot, allowing them to simmer briefly. 

step #3

Season your cod filet with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper before adding it to the pot. Cover the pot's contents and leave it for approximately seven minutes. 

step #4

Check on the filet - if it's nearly cooked, then it's time to add the shrimp. Cover once more for around a minute, or until everything's fully cooked.

step #5

Slice a lime for garnish and added flavor and arrange it on your plate as you serve.

step #6

Ready to serve!
