Step 1: If we don't have ready made vegetable broth, we dissolve 2 vegetable stock cubes (we can also use fresh, available in the super markets) in 1 lt of warm water.
Step 2: We cut the fish fillet into bite-size pieces and put it in a bowl. We add the lemon and the salt, and let it aside. We proceed with our recipe.
