Recipe

Caldo de Pescado

This stock is easy to prepare. Just remember to order the head and trimmings ahead of time, because they are not always available. The stock can be made a day ahead and kept refrigerated. It also freezes well for up to a couple of months.

Yield: Makes about 6 cups

Ingredients

  • 1½ pounds heads, bones, and trimmings of any white fish (such as corvina, flounder, or sole)
  • 1 medium-size onion, quartered
  • 1 leek (white part and 1 inch of the green), washed well and quartered
  • 4 cloves garlic, lightly crushed
  • 1 medium-size carrot, peeled
  • 6 sprigs fresh parsley
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme or ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 10 black peppercorns
  • 6 cups water
  • ½ cup dry white wine

Directions

1. Place all the ingredients in a large casserole and bring to boil over medium heat, skimming off the froth as it rises to the surface. Reduce the heat to low, partially cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.

2. Strain the stock through a fine-mesh sieve. Do not press on the solids. Let the stock cool. Store in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator or freezer.
