Notes

Fish stock is a flavourful liquid prepared by simmering meaty bones from meat or poultry, seafood and/or vegetables in water with aromatics (onion, celery, ginger, garlic and thyme) until their flavour, aroma, colour, body and nutritive value are extracted. The liquid is then strained and used to prepare sauces, soups and as a braising and simmering cooking medium. Fish Tea Soup Mix boiled in water can be substituted for the stock.
