DIRECTIONS

Fish stock

  1. In a deep pot, boil catfish head and bones in water. Add onion, garlic and bay leaf.

  2. Peel and clean shrimp. Set aside shells and heads, and peeled shrimps in separate bowls.

  3. Crush shrimp heads and shells using a mortar and pestle to release their juices, and add to broth. Add salt and pepper to taste and boil at low heat, covered, for 20 minutes. Strain liquid and discard remaining ingredients. Keep warm.

  4. Pour broth back into pot. Add potatoes, carrots and salt to taste. Cook at medium-low heat for approximately 10–12 minutes, until potatoes are cooked, but firm (al dente).

  5. Season fish with salt and pepper and add to broth. Cook for 8–10 minutes at medium-low heat. When cooked, remove fish, carrots and potatoes from stock and place on a tray.
