As with all recipes , what you put into it , is going to influence the final dish . So , While you can buy Fish stock cubes these days which although ok ( very high salt content ) , will not give you as good a result as making your own. Fortunately , Fish stock doesn't take long to make and doesn't need hours of brewing and simmering. If you can chat up your Fishmonger ( If he is the handsome rugged type , could be fun!!! , Might be a bit on the smelly side but nothing that a good hose down wouldn't sort out  ), plus ,  he 'll probably give you the Fish bones for free .
