Fish Fumet Recipe

Fish Fumet

Marie-Danielle

Recipe by  

Fish Fumet (concentrated fish stock) is used in preparing many sauces accommodating fish dishes or fish soups (It keeps up to 3 days in the fridge and up to 3 months in the freezer). Some supermarkets sell solid fish stock in cubes (different from Court Bouillon), or liquid fish stock in bottles.

Fish Fumet relies on the use of fish trimmings - that's all the heads and tails and bones that the fishmonger removes when selling prepared fish. All you have to do is ask! They will be happy to give it to you if you are a regular customer or are buying fish from them.

How to Cook Fish Fumet

  1. Peel and finely chop the onions, shallots and carrots. Roughly crush the fish trimmings, then put them in a large pan with the onions, shallots and carrots. Add the bouquet garni, and the half lemon, cut in half again.
  2. Pour in a large glass of white wine and 2 pints (1.2ltr) of water. Add a generous pinch of sea salt and a few twists of freshly ground black pepper. Bring to boil, then turn the heat down and simmer without covering, allowing the stock to reduce for one hour.
  3. When the liquid has cooled, strain through a sieve (strainer), retaining the liquid and disposing of the solids. Store in the fridge or freezer.
