Wash the fish thoroughly (organs should already be removed).
2
Place the fish on an oven tray and sprinkle with the salt a dn keep aside for 20 minutes.
3
Put in a preheated oven 180C for 15 minutes - this will remove any fishy smells but develop more fish aroma.

Tips & Note

●Be careful to remove any blood from the fish otherwise this will give the stock a bad smell
●You can ask your fishmonger “Can I have some fish bones for making fish stock?”and most will be happy to give it to you free or at a very reasonable cost
