Instructions Checklist
  • Sprinkle fish with seasoning.

  • Melt the butter in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add the shallots and garlic; sauté 3 minutes. Add wine; bring to a boil. Add fish; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 16 minutes or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Remove fish with a spatula; place 1 fillet on each of 4 plates. Bring poaching liquid to a boil; cook until reduced to 1/2 cup (about 2 minutes). Strain poaching liquid through a sieve into a bowl; discard solids. Spoon 2 tablespoons poaching liquid over each fillet.
