  • How to make fish broth

This recipe of rice broth made with fresh hake fish. You can use some other variety of fish as long as it is white.

As for the size of the wheels, they were small and not more than 2 cm thick. In the photo you can see the size they had.

I put cayenne pepper because I like the spicy touch, but you do not need to use it if you do not want to.

Of rest, pure traditional ingredients of any home cooking.
