Macro alias: RTEEmbeddedImage


1/2 cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley (1/4 cup dry)
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh chives (1/8 cup dry)
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh dill (1/8 cup dry)
Juice and zest of 2 lemons, divided
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
2 cups water
1 cup white wine
1 shallot, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
4 (6 ounce) wild striped bass fillets, about 1-inch thick
Whole chives for garnish
Green salad, for serving


In a small bowl, combine the parsley, chives, dill, half of the lemon juice, zest, and the oil; stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper; set aside.

In a large skillet, combine water, wine, remaining lemon juice, the shallot, and garlic. Bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook for 5 minutes.

Season fish with salt and pepper. Add to simmering liquid, cover, and cook until opaque, about 10 minutes. Use a slotted spoon or spatula to remove fish from pan and place on serving plates. Discard poaching liquid. Spoon herb mixture over fish, garnish with whole chives. Serve immediately with salad.
