Salmon Stock

Created by Nelly Hand


Use this stock for making salmon chowder or a flavorful ramen bowl. With gratitude for the life these fish give us, this recipe celebrates using every part of the fish to nourish our bodies. 

This stock freezes really well, make up a batch and stock your freezer. 


2-3 Wild Salmon Skeletons, Can use either head on or head off - be sure to remove all organs and gills
