Remove the edible fish parts and cut into small pieces (approx. 2 - 3 tbsp). Also cut the two onions into small pieces. .Place the vegetables (carrot slices, celery lozenges, leek strips and cooked onion pieces), the loosened fish parts, the fish stock (400 ml) and the fish sauce (½ tbsp) in the fish stock and simmer / cook for about 15 minutes. Finally fold in the chopped parsley. Toast toast, cut into cubes and fry the cubes in a pan with plenty of butter until golden brown. Serve the fish soup hot and serve with the toasted brood cubes.
