Sole Poached in Salsa

I don't know if your like me but with the heat wave we have been having lately it takes a lot of motivation to cook elaborate meals. This was invented on a whim, was fast to make and bursting with fresh flavor. I have called it a salsa as thats basically what it is but instead of cilantro I used basil.


  • a handful of fresh basil leaves
  • 2 cloves of chopped garlic
  • 1/4 of a red onion chopped
  • 3 tomatoes chopped
  • salt to taste
  • a little fresh lime juice
  • 2 fillets of sole (I keep in freezer for a quick meal)

  1. add the ingredients minus the fish to a blender and chop
  2. then add the fish to a pan with the salsa and cover simply poach with a lid for 7-10 minutes until the fish is cooked
  3. serve with rice and vegetables

  4. This is a marvelous idea. I'm thinking what I could do with a partial jar of tomato sauce, some onion, some garlic. Whee!!!
