How to make it

  • Place fish heads/bones/parts in a large pot and cover with water.
  • Add chopped vegetables and quartered lemon.
  • Throw in some salt and pepper.
  • Bring to a boil and cover and simmer about 20 minutes or until fish is cooked.
  • Remove fish and vegetables with a slottered strianer spoon.
  • Reserve vegetables, discard lemon.
  • Carefully remove as much fish meat as possible from heads and fish parts.
  • Place back into the pot with the vegetables and season with the fish, seafood or lobster bouillion paste.
  • Add some wine for desired taste
  • The flavor improves greatly the next day.
  • Note: sometimes I throw in drained canned salmon, albacorre tuna, clams, and if you wish shrimp etc.

    Nope,
    I don't remove the eyes until after they are cooked. But I also learned in culinary school, to rinse well the fish parts with cold water, remove the gills which may cause a bitterness ) and never let the stock boil, just simmer about 20 minutes. Also oily fish are normally not used for stock but I do use salmon and always get a tasty recipe and not overly cloudy either.
    I think the trick is to gently simmer 20 minutes and not boil

    This sounds wonderful. Do you remove the fish eyes?? When I was in school, we were told to remove them because they would cloud the fish stock...just wondering cause I have shyed away from making stock because I cannot get myself to de-eye the fish! :o(
