  2. Dip the heads and tails into cold water, put on fire, bring to a boil, remove the foam, add onions,  roots, salt, pepper, bay leaf and cook for 15-20 minutes, periodically removing the foam.
  3. Remove the heads and tails from the broth, immerse pieces of peeled fish in it, cook until tender over low heat.

  5. Soak gelatin in warm water (for 40 g of gelatin you need 150-200 ml of water).
  6. Add swollen gelatin soaked in warm water to the strained broth, bring to a boil, but do not boil (heat to dissolve the gelatin).
