Mise en place
- Rough chop the vegetables
- Wash the fish parts with cold water, discard any blood spots, and cut into palm-sized pieces.
- In large stock pot, sweat the vegetables in olive oil.
- A fish parts to vegetables and sweat until all of the juices evaporate. Then add the white wine, herbs and peppercorns.

Tip: NEVER add salt to a stock preparation because each dish you make will require varying degrees of added salt. For example, if you were to use salted stock in a recipe that calls for soy sauce, you may fine the dish overly salty. Jamie Kelly is an American marketing professional turned gastronaut.
