Our salmon bones, head, and tail pieces are a great way to start your fish stock or broth. The full flavored taste of salmon shines through, imparting a rich and hearty finish. If you like a milder fish stock, use just the bones and not the head. Since salmon is a relatively oily fish this makes a stronger stock that is often preferred for heartier dishes like chowders.

  • 1 head (split in 2 pieces) per pack plus tail pieces and bones, skin on.

    Preparation

    Rinse fish bones well with cold water. Use about 1lb of bones for every 5 cups of water. Place bones in a large pot; add any additional ingredients and water. Bring almost to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and cook at a simmer for 20-30 minutes. Skim any foam that rises to the surface as you're cooking and strain through a sieve with cheesecloth to remove solids. Some additional ingredients we like to add are onions, pepper, carrots and parsley. We also love adding fish meat to make a seafood stew.

    Unlike normal beef and chicken stock, fish stock is ready in just 45 minutes

    The head and bones are often discarded so using these products help reduce waste.
