  Courtbouillon means quickboiling in French; it doesn't need to cook
  for long (compared to a stock). Can use this courtbouillon to poach
  any fish as well as shrimp, squid, etc.
  
  A courtbouillon should be fullflavored and wellseasoned, with a good
  dose of acidity to firm up the protein in the fish. No need to season
  fish fillets with salt and pepper as seasoning is already in the
  liquid.
