I adore this recipe and every time I make it, I love it even more. It's easy enough to do on a weeknight and elegant enough to do for company. I do add a little extra garlic and wine to the poaching sauce, but really... can you have too much garlic and wine? It's wonderfully light but comforting and doesn't require other dishes to make it whole. Lovely!

I followed the recipe to the tee and it was wonderful! Fish was moist and flavorful and the toast was a great sponge for the yummy broth and veggies. The bacon vinaigrette was what made this dish, a perfect blend of tart and sweet! Everyone raved about the flavors. Will make this again and again!

Probably the best recipe in existence of food. Had to a try a different take last night. Had no chicken broth ,out of white wine,go figure, so I used two tablespoons of concentrated chicken stock. Added a cup of coconut milk and 1/2 teaspoon cayenne.Tasted fantastic. With the bacon dressing, out of red whine vinegar so i/2 teaspoon balsamic, 1/8 tea of maple pepper ant a few shitaki mushrooms cooked in melted butter and chopped fine.Sometimes you just have to improvise. Just as good as the original.
