Homemade Fish Stock

 

February 28th 2013By Chef Laura Frankel

This recipe is for a classic French Fumet de Poisson, which is a fancy way of saying fish stock. If you are having problems with fish stock, this recipe will give you great results every time. The keys to a great Fish Fumet are a short cooking period, and not using too much water (then you will have a rich gelatinous stock). The short cooking time will give you a light, fresh tasting stock that is not fishy. Using the right amount of water will give you the gelatin-rich body that will stand up to any Gefilte Fish or poached fish dish like my favorite saffron poached halibut.
