1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced and divided
1 bunch fresh Italian parsley, finely chopped and divided
1 medium sweet onion, finely chopped

4 cups no-salt-added vegetable stock (or broth), divided

1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1 teaspoon pepper, divided
4 white fish fillets (such as haddock, snapper, or tilapia); 1 1/2 lb
1 cup basmati rice
2 cups water
1 lime, for wedges


  1. Slice green onion (1 cup). Chop parsley (1 cup), onion (1 cup), and garlic. Remove membrane and seeds from jalapeños (if desired), then finely chop two jalapeños, slice remaining jalapeño thinly.

  4. Carefully nestle fish into broth mixture (wash hands) and cover. Simmer (do NOT boil) 8–10 minutes or until fish is opaque and flakes easily. Serve fish over rice with poaching liquid, sprinkled with remaining 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper and topped with jalapeño slices, remaining green onions and parsley, and lime wedges.
Always check fish for bones and cook to an internal temperature of 145°F.
