Traditional Fish Stock

2

pounds fish frames, (bones) from sole, flounder, halibut, and/or turbot, cut

into, 2-inch pieces and rinsed clean of any blood

1/4

cup

dry white wine

About, 1 quart water

1

medium

onion, very thinly sliced

2

stalks celery, very thinly sliced

1

medium

carrot, very thinly sliced

1

dried bay leaf

2

tablespoons

roughly chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves and

3

-4 sprigs fresh thyme

1

tablespoon

black peppercorns

Kosher, or sea salt

1

In a 3 to 4 - quart stockpot, combine the fish bones, white wine, and just

2

enough water to cover (you won’t need the full quart of water here). Bring to a

3

boil, skimming off the white foam from the top of the stock as it approaches

4

boiling, then reduce the heat so the stock simmers. (Using a ladle and a

5

circular motion, push the foam from the center to the outside of the pot, where

6

it is easy to remove).

7

Add the onions, celery, carrots, bay leaves, parsley, thyme, and peppercorns and

8

stir them into the liquid. If the ingredients are not covered by liquid, add a

9

little more water. Allow the stock to simmer gently for 20 minutes.

10

Remove the stock from the stove, stir it again, and allow it to steep for 10

11

minutes. Strain through a fine-mesh strainer and season lightly with salt. If

12

you are not going to be using the stock within the hour, chill it as quickly as

13

possible. Cover the stock after it has completely cooled and keep refrigerated

14

for up to 3 days, or freeze for up to 2 months.
