recipe

Fennel, lemon, herbs, and white wine create a flavorful broth, often referred to as court-bouillon, for poaching halibut. To maintain a clear cooking liquid, the aromatics are bundled between a halved leek. A slotted spatula or two eases the transfer of the finished fillets to a plate. A spoon-ful of broth can double as a finishing sauce.

recipe

These individual desserts can be made in ovenproof ramekins, mugs, or cups. The recipe also works in a nine-inch round cake pan, although you will need to increase the baking time to 35 minutes. Bread that has sat out at room temperature for two days works best, but you can also use fresh bread that has been cubed and lightly toasted on a baking sheet in a 350-degree oven.

recipe

Avgolemono gets its smooth and thick consistency not from cream but from eggs; they're tempered by hot chicken broth and whisked into the soup just before serving. Shredded boneless, skinless chicken breast makes this soup a filling one that is nevertheless low in calories and fat.
