Sea Bream Poached in Crazy Water
Sea Bream Poached in Crazy Water
Method

The term “Acqua Pazza” meaning “Crazy Water” is used in Italian cuisine to refer to a recipe for poached white fish, or to simply refer to the lightly herbed broth used to poach it.

  • Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a nonstick pan over high heat.
  • Carefully add the sea bream in to the hot oil.
  • Cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side, until golden.
  • Add the star anise so it can release its aroma.
  • Add the garlic around the fish and cook for another minute.
  • Add the chili pepper and the cherry tomatoes.
  • Add the wine and let it boil for 1 minute.
  • Add the water and a generous amount of salt and pepper.
  • Cover pan with lid and lower heat. Simmer for 15 minutes, until the fish is cooked through.
  • Serve sea bream with sauce. Drizzle with some extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with some chopped parsley.
