Method

  • 01
  • For fish stock, combine all ingredients (except eggwhites and shells) in a large heavy-based saucepan, add enough water to cover and season to taste with sea salt. Bring to the boil over medium heat, then simmer over low heat for about 30 minutes. Strain through a muslin-lined sieve, pressing to extract all the liquid (discard solids), into a clean saucepan. Bring to the boil over medium heat, add eggwhites and shells and simmer over low heat until eggwhites coagulate (5 minutes). Strain through a muslin-lined sieve (discard solids). Makes about 1½ litres.
  • 02
  • Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat and sauté onion and garlic until soft (5-7 minutes). Add tomato, white wine and vinegar and cook until mixture reduces by half (3-5 minutes). Add fish fillets and cook, stirring carefully until opaque (3 minutes). Add fish stock, season to taste and simmer until fish is cooked through (5-10 minutes). Divide among serving bowls, scatter with parsley and serve with toasted bread to the side.
