Colleen’s Kitchen

After many years of cooking for my family, I’m pleased to say that we have compiled a comprehensive and versatile recipe collection. I love the challenge of pairing different dishes with Goosecross wine, so I have personally tested each recipe to be sure it’s complete. My recipes not overly complicated, seasonally delicious with readily available ingredients, and they won’t leave you with too much clean-up. I sincerely hope you enjoy them.

Wine & Garlic Poached Cod Fillets
Goosecross Cellars Recipe
Sauvignon Blanc


¼ cup olive oil
3 cloves garlic, crushed
2 cups Goosecross Sauvignon Blanc
2 cups water
1 lemon, sliced
2 tablespoons capers
2 tablespoons caper juice
4 cod fillets, about 6 ounces each
Salt & pepper, to taste


In a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat, heat olive oil until shimmering. Add the garlic and sauté until fragrant. Add the wine, water, lemon, capers and juice and bring to simmer. The temperature of the poaching liquid is all-important. It must be maintained at a bare simmer, a more vigorous simmer may cause the fish to fall apart or cook unevenly.
Rinse fish with water and pat dry. Season the fish with salt and pepper. Gently slip the fish fillets into the simmering poaching liquid, bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 8 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and let the fish continue cooking in the hot liquid for 2 more minutes; this technique ensures that the fish is gently cooked and is never overdone.

Remove fish from liquid and serve.

Serves 4
