To make certain poached fish recipes like Poached Cod with Green Olives and Potato Purée; Poached Halibut with Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Pesto, and Zucchini; Poached Arctic Char with Brown Butter and Shiitake; and Poached Striped Bass with Bok Choy and Broken Ginger Dressing; you need to monitor water temperature. The easiest way to do this is to use a deep-fry thermometer, which is made to be clipped to the side of a pot. If you don’t have one, you can use a probe or instant-read thermometer instead. These don’t usually come with a pot clip, but you can easily improvise one with a small binder clip, as shown.
