Le poisson est cuit à feu très doux dans l'eau relevée de bouquet garni, oignons, céleri, voire carotte en mirepoix

A ‘short’ or quick bouillon used for poaching fish, made with a bouquet garni, mirepoix and white wine, lemon or vinegar and salt. If you’re feeling lazy, you can also find instant court-bouillon cubes or powder in the supermarché.
