Organic Salmon Frames, Previously Frozen

Forget about stock cubes – use these bones to make your own fish broth the thrifty, old-fashioned way

At The Organic Butchery, we don't chuck out our organic salmon frames (or salmon heads) once the fillets have been removed. That would be ridiculously wasteful. The skeletons and tails of the fish harbour a huge amount of flavour and they can deliver plenty of goodness when they're gently bubbled into a stock or broth. Homemade fish stock has a delicacy and purity that you don't get from stock cubes or pots and by making your own you can be certain what's gone into it. Which is ideal if you're keeping an eye on your intake of additives or salt. 

Please note: This product is sent frozen and whilst we do our best to keep your order chilly, this item may defrost partially or fully on its way to you. Not suitable for re-freezing. Eat within 2 days.

Our head-to-hoof philosophy runs through everything we do here at The Organic Butchery. We respect every carcass that comes through our butchery and endeavour to make use of every single piece. This includes the bones, which are hidden powerhouses of flavour and can be used to add a whole other dimension to home cooking. Waste of all sorts is something we're committed to fighting, so across our operation we strive to recycle as much as possible, generate our own solar power and fertilise our fields using muck and wastewater from our dairy.

When making stock or broth from your organic salmon frames you can choose to be super simple or get a bit fancier. The straightforward approach involves thoroughly washing your frames then putting them in a deep pan, covering them with water and letting them come to the very gentlest simmer. Let them bubble for at least half an hour, leaving them for a couple of hours if you want to maximise flavour. Just be careful to keep things low and ensure the water stays topped up. 

If you want to add some additional flavours as you cook your broth, throw in some lemon peel or a stem of lemongrass for a subtle citrussy tang or add a bit of a kick with some slices of ginger. Parsley, dill or tarragon are good choices of herb to deliver complementary but delicate flavours.
