Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Servings: 4


Poaching Liquid: In a large (12-inch) nonstick pan or stockpot, combine all ingredients except seafood. Bring to a simmer; cook 3 to 5 minutes. Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska Seafood portions under cold water. Turn off heat and gently add seafood to liquid, skin side down. Return heat to a simmer.

Once simmering, cover pan and cook 4 to 5 minutes for frozen seafood or 2 minutes for fresh/thawed fish. Turn off heat and let seafood rest 5 minutes or until seafood is opaque throughout. Serve with salad.

Salad: Prepare dressing by whisking orange juice, poaching broth, rice vinegar, olive oil and coconut cream. Add salt and pepper to taste. Toss salad greens, pineapple and mandarins with 3/4 cup dressing.

For each serving, arrange 2 cups salad greens on a plate. Top with a seafood portion. Garnish with avocado slices and nuts; drizzle on an additional 1 tablespoon dressing.

Best with Alaska whitefish varieties: Alaska Pollock, Cod, Sole or Halibut.
