Step by step recipe

Stage 1
10 min.
Nicholas's fish : Photo of step #1 It is not necessary to use fish fillet, ordinary pieces will be fine.

Wash the 300 g fish fillet, remove skin and bones then cut into medium size pieces.

Remarks

Adding cream is optional, but Nicholas loves it and it's smoother with it.

You can add other vegetables, but I think that leeks are essential.
