One of my spring goals as part of my partnership with Kohl's #MakeYourMove campaign, is to take better care of myself, so I've been making the commitment to take the time to make bone broths. Bone broths are a huge part of the GAPS diet, and are healing for the stomach, great for digestion and have a lot of nutrients. Fish broth is one of my favorites (I know, it sounds terrible), but it's really easy to make and I promise it's delish. I made a quick video on how to make it below. It's super easy.
When it comes to broths (and most recipes, who am I kidding?!) I'm not really one to measure every little thing, and I often just use whatever herbs, spices and other ingredients I have around the house. I encourage you to do the same. For this broth, you just get a fish head from your local grocery store (bonus - they're really inexpensive!), throw it in some water in a crock pot with salt and pepper (and if you're feeling crazy, you can throw in a bay leaf or two, maybe a squirt of lemon, and whatever other herbs you like when you cook fish) and leave it on low for 24 to 48 hours. The next thing you know, you've got fish broth - a healing, delicious drink you can sip as you would tea. Or if that weirds you out (and I get it, my mom thinks I'm crazy), you could just transfer the broth to a pot over high heat, add some fish meat and veggies and continue to let it cook and you'll have yourself a fish soup in around 30 minutes.
You can use any fish head - I usually buy salmon, cod, or haddock, but really any fish will work.
So tell me- what do you think? Would you be brave enough to sip fish broth or does it kind of creep you out?
