About this recipe: Use this as a base for soups, sauces and risottos. Never use an oily fish for stock - no salmon, herring, mackerel, or sardines. Any other fish is more or less suitable, but snapper or trevally make good stock. If in doubt, ask your fishmonger.

  • 1.2 litres water
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 1 small onion, quartered
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 250g fish, gutted and bones in
