    Seed the bird's eye (Thai) chili, wash and slice the fennel, the tomatoes, and the celery.

    Peel and mince the onion, the shallots, and the garilc.

  • The broth

    In a large pot with some oil over low heat, place the pieces of fish. Cook them for 5 minutes without coloring.

    Add all the remaining ingredients except for the pastis and water, continue to fry for another 5 minutes, avoid any coloring.

    Pour in pastis and water, bring to a boil.

    Reduce the heat until it simmers, let cook for 1:30, skim regularly with a skimmer to remove impurities..

    This recipe will give you about 2.5 liters of broth.

  • Finishing touches

    Pass the broth through a fine mesh seive, let it sit so the impurities fall to the bottom. Cool it in the refridgerator.
