In Denmark a lot of fish is eaten since, of course, it is readily available. Use any firm white fish such as cod, hake, halibut etc.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large saucepan, combine fish, fish bones, bouquet garni (use leeks strip to tie parsley, celery, and fennel).
  2. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and cook, uncovered, for 15 minutes.
  3. Strain mixture through a fine sieve; whisk egg white into the strained liquid and sieve again.
  4. Mix gelatin with a little water and add to liquid; taste and adjust seasoning.
  5. Set mixture aside and allow to set lightly.
  6. Meanwhile, cook the julienned vegetables, in lightly salted water, for about 4 minutes; drain, allow to cool.
