light vegetable stock ( see recipe in my blog) and fresh thyme, 1 bay leaf, then turn off the heat. Add the fish cut into portions and transfer to the oven to cook at 120 degrees Celsius or 250 F for 10 minutes. remove from the oven and let sit in the pan until serving. The fish will remain moist and warm, perfect with any sauce, such as beurre blanc (see recipe) which you can prépare separately and serve hot when your ready to plate.
