Pesce lesso is an Italian household stand-by for when one is feeling unwell or recovering from an illness. Light and tasty, it is important to take the time to prepare the stock in which you are going to poach the fish. Generally speaking, white fish such as cod, haddock, or whiting, or fish such as trout and salmon are best for poaching. Oily fish, such as sardines or mackerel, respond best to broiling or baking. You can also add a glass or two of dry white wine to the basic stock for extra flavor.
hollandaise sauce, mayonnaise, or lemon juice and olive oil
