Fish Tea

1 lb. whole fished cleaned
2 qt. water
1 large onion chopped
3 garlic cloves minced
2 carrots sliced ¼ inch thick
1-2 celery stalks as desired
1 large potato chopped into 1inch thick pieces
2 sprigs of thyme
2 to 3 bay leaves
tsp. salt or to taste
1 tsp. Mama’s Own Pepper Sauce or to taste


1.      In a large stockpot add water, whole fish, salt and thyme and bring to a boil.
2.      Boil fish until it starts to separate from the bone. Crush fish slightly to release flavor.
3.      Separate the fish from the broth with a strainer (saving both the cooked fish and broth).
4.      Put the fish broth back into the empty pot and add all remaining ingredients then bring to a boil and turn down stovetop to medium heat.
5.      Cook until vegetables are tender. Take this time to remove bones from fish and break fish into small bite size pieces.
6.      Add the fish to the pot and let it warm for 5 minutes.
7.       Taste the soup and add salt or more Mama’s Own Pepper Sauce if needed. Serve warm and enjoy!
