Nage VS Court Bouillon
ChefTalk.com Top Picks
nage = swim
In France if I order a poisson au court bouillon, I get a piece of fish that was cooked in a court bouillon, but I'm not being served any of the court bouillon itself. Maybe instead the fish comes with mayo, aïoli or some other sauce.
If I order a nage de poissons, or a poisson à la nage, the poisson comes in a bowl, swimming in its seasoned court-bouillon.
Hope that helps?
