Continue like this for all the vegetables, without changing cooking water, which is becoming the vegetable stock for cooking the fish.

Set vegetables aside.

Stage 10 - 3 min.
Stock-pot fish  : Photo of step #10
Wash 1 piece fish, it's not necessary to remove skin and bones now, that will be much easier when fish is cooked.

Stage 11 - 40 min.
Stock-pot fish  : Photo of step #11
Put fish into the vegetables broth, over a low heat.

Cook gently, without boiling, just barely simmering, until it becomes opaque (about 40 minutes).

A better method: cook until internal temperature reaches 70°C or 158°F (an electronic thermometer is useful). Once at this temperature, the fish is cooked, and longer or hotter cooking serves no purpose.

Stage 12 - 10 min.

When fish is cooked, you can now easily remove skin, bones and other bits to keep only the very best of flesh.

Note: Up to this point everything can be prepared in advance, like the day before.

Mix well, season, and serve as soon as the mixture is nice and hot.

Remarks

You can use any kind of fish for this recipe, but it's a good opportunity to use cheaper kinds, and the fish can be prepared beforehand.

If you don't wish to use cream, it's not essential.
