Fish stock Recipe

Simple to make if you have leftover fish bones or prawn shells, and certainly more authentic than using commercially prepared fish stocks which may contain MSG. I use amchooror mango powder for a change instead of lime juice. This stock only needs 1/2 hour of cooking.

Ingredients :

    • 4 cups (1 litre) water
    • 300 g (10 oz) fish bones, or fish head, cleaned well
    • 2 teaspoons dried mango powder (amchoor), or 300 g (10 oz) prawn shells
    • 1 green onion (scallion)

Method :

Bring all the ingredients to a boil in a stockpot. Reduce the heat to low and simmer partially covered for 30 minutes, skimming off the residue that floats to the surface. Remove from the heat, strain through a fine sieve and discard the solids. Allow the clear stock to cool completely before refrigerating or freezing.

MAKES : 21/2 cups (625 ml)
PREPARATION TIME : 5 mins
COOKING TIME : 25 mins
