After thawing frozen fish, is there anything you can make (other than a sauce or baked goods) with the fishy-scented and -flavoured water?

I know I could always use it to make a strong fishy-flavoured seafood sauce, especially if I add in some seafood boullion or other fresh seafood ingredients to round out the flavour, but instead of doing that I'd rather try and make something different. I was considering using it to make some biscuits, but figured it'd either end up tasting not as strong (and thus end up just making them taste weird) or too overpowering, making the biscuit taste of nothing but. The juices I'm asking about, by the way, are from some vacuum-sealed bags of frozen mullet. It's definitely got the smell, and some of the strong flavour of the mullet, but other than as a sauce or in a basic baked good recipe, can't really think of anything, and doing a couple search engine checks hasn't really brought up anything anywhere, which is why I'm making this, my first post here on Chowhound, dedicated to asking you all of the Chowhound community if you have any ideas. Thank you in advance!
