Instructions Checklist
  • Rinse fish bones in cold water. Place in a nonaluminum stockpot with wine, onions, leeks, celery, garlic, parsley, thyme and bay leaf. Add enough cold water to cover, about 3 1/2 quarts. Bring just to a boil. Reduce heat to low, skim off any foam and simmer, uncovered, for 30 to 35 minutes, skimming occasionally.
