Fish Stock

  • SERVINGS: Makes about 2 1/2 quarts
  • MAKE-AHEAD

Use fish frames—the fish head and bones that remain once a fish has been filleted—from lean, white-fleshed fish such as red snapper, flounder, halibut, tilefish and porgy. Red snapper yields a particularly tasty stock. The vegetables in fish stock are thinly sliced to cook more quickly.
