  • fresh dill and parsley just a handful of both
  • 1 bay leaf (dry or fresh)
  • 2-3 tomatoes few more if using smaller tomatoes

  • Peel and cut potato
  • Peel and cut carrot, not chop just circles would be good
  • Cut tomatoes, into small pieces
  • Cut fish into smaller pieces (not to small so fish doesn’t fall apart when boiling), take skin off if you don’t like to eat that part

After your bouillon is ready strain it into pot,  you will be using the water part. The fish pieces and onion you may throw out or use them if you want for something else.
