Chilean Poached Trout with Salsa Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4


  • 4 rainbow or salmon trout (about 1 pound each), ready to cook, or 1 piece (about 3 pounds) salmon, tail end if possible
  • 1/2 onion, sliced
  • 1 leek, trimmed and sliced
  • 1 carrot, peeled and sliced
  • 1 small bunch fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon whole black peppercorns
  • Salt to taste
  • Cucumber slices
  • Lemon slices
  • Lettuce leaves
  • 2 cups Salsa Verde
How to cook Chilean Poached Trout with Salsa:
  • Place the onion, leek, carrot, parsley, and peppercorns in a saucepan large enough to hold the fish. Add water to cover the vegetables by 2 inches. Season generously with salt. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer 15 minutes.
  • Add the fish, and simmer over low heat until the fish just begins to flake. For every 1 inch of thickness, measured at the thickest point, allow 10 minutes of cooking time.
  • Carefully transfer the cooked fish to a rack and let cool to lukewarm. Peel off the skin, and arrange the fish on a decorative platter.
  • Garnish with the cucumber, lemon slices, and lettuce. Serve the Salsa Verde on the side.
