1 large lemon, juiced 
Small bunch fresh thyme, chopped 
Small bunch fresh parsley, chopped 
1 quart extra virgin olive oil

Bring cod to room temperature. Season with fresh lemon juice, sea salt, and black pepper. Add oil, garlic, lemon skin, thyme, and parsley to a large deep sided pan. Season with sea salt and black pepper.

On low to medium heat, bring oil to a simmer (do not boil!). Add fish, cover, and let it poach for 10 to 15 minutes or until the fish is cooked.Remove fish from oil and serve immediately.

gorgeous recipe Mia and could you poach the fish in milk or wouldn't have the same texture and taste? I know sometimes oil is better but just thought I would ask anyway xoxo

Thank you, Beverley. Milk also works. I'd infuse fresh garlic and herbs into the milk and season well with sea salt and black pepper. Very nice indeed.
