Our wild caught snapper bones are a great way to start your fish stock or broth. The sweet, nutty taste of snapper shines through, imparting a buttery smooth finish. If you like a milder fish stock, use just the bones and not the head.
- 1 head (split in 2 pieces) per pack plus bones.
- 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.
- Your freshly made fish stock is perfect in our easy Cioppino Recipe.

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.
Can be frozen to enjoy later.
