Poaching is the process of cooking an item in simmering water, it is a delicate process compared to boiling and is typically used with fish, seafood, and fruit.
The liquid is just as important as the item being cooked as it also adds flavor to the dish. Although it is typically a water-based stock it may also be alcohol-based, or oil such as butter.
Poached eggs are a very popular poached item. Although there are a lot of dishes that use a simple water-based poached egg, typically served on top of another item. Eggs may also be poached in a reach sauce which is served with the egg such as shakshuka or huevos ranchos
