Fish broth: Simple and versatile
Fish broth serves as a delicious stock for soups, sauces, and stews. Or, you can make a light, delicious soup by adding organic vegetables, scallions, and herbs such as parsley or cilantro.
To lend your broth vibrant color and healthful antioxidant power, add turmeric powder. For added zest and flavor, add hot spices such as cayenne, Tabasco, wasabi, horseradish, paprika, salsa, or chili sauce.
Gelatin and collagen: Nourishing fish-broth factors:
Gelatin – and the collagen it contains – are key components of fish broth. The body uses collagen to form bones, connective tissues (tendons, ligaments, and cartilage), skin, hair, nails, intestinal linings, and much more. So-called “marine” peptides from fish collagen abound in four amino acids – glycine, proline, hydroxyproline, and arginine – in unique combinations and ratios.
Marine collagen peptides are reported to stimulate formation of connective tissues, moderate inflammation, and support healthy stomach linings.
