Poaching fish for six is easier than you think. In this Mad Genius recipe from Justin Chapple, two large fillets are oven-poached in fruity olive oil with fresh herbs and lemon. For an unfussy presentation, place the baking dish on the table and serve the fish family-style. Just like that, you’ve got a weeknight dinner party.

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Let fish stand in marinade at room temperature 15 minutes before baking. Remove plastic wrap, and bake in preheated oven until fish is just cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes. Cut each fillet into 3 pieces, and serve immediately with cucumber salad and rice.
