How to make fish broth

How to make fish broth


A basic preparation, used less often than meat broth, but equally as important for a good cook.

Ingredients for 4 people

2 lb fish bones
1 white onion
1 stalk celery
1 carrot
whole peppercorns
parsley to taste
4 quarts water


Clean the fish bones and rinse well in running water.

Fill a large heavy-bottomed pot with cold water.

Add the fish bones, roughly chopped celery, a peeled onion, a couple peppercorns, the parsley, the carrot, salt and finally all of the water.

Bring the water to a boil over medium-low heat and simmer for 25 to 30 minutes.

After 10 minutes, use a slotted spoon to skim off the foam that will form on the surface of the broth until clear.

Once the broth is done, filter it through a chinois.
