  • Place the onions, carrots, celery, bay leaves, peppercorns, and salt in the bottom of a wide shallow pan.
  • Add 4 cup (1 L) water and bring to a boil over moderate heat.
  • Add the fish, plus more water if necessary to cover the fish, and simmer (do not boil) for 10 minutes.
  • Mix the cornstarch with a little cold water.
  • Ladle and strain about 2 cups (500 ml) of the poaching liquid into a small saucepan and add the cornstarch mixture, stirring constantly over moderate heat until it boils and thickens.
  • In a separate bowl beat the eggs lightly, then add the lemon juice and beat until thoroughly combined.
  • Add a little of the thickened sauce to the lemon egg mixture, then add the lemon egg mixture to the saucepan.
  • Stir constantly until the sauce thickens, but DO NOT BOIL.
  • Carefully lift the fish out of the pan and serve covered with the sauce.
  • May be served either hot or cold but I prefer hot of a bed of white rice.


Instead of Halibut, you can use other fish such as salmon, flounder, cod, or haddock.
