Step 1

Combine the fish trimmings and all other ingredients in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil; skim off any discoloured froth that comes to the top.

Step 2

Lower the heat and simmer covered for 30 minutes; do not over boil the fish bones as this will create a gluey stock.

Step 3

Strain the stock through a cheesecloth lined strainer; return the stock to the pot and simmer a further 15 to 30 minutes, reducing it to the desired consistancy; add salt to taste.

This is a great fish stock recipe! I like the flavour the addition of wine gives to this. I used this to make a spicy fish soup and... Oh yum!!! Made for the Shoot Me Please!! Event in the Food Photo Forum.
