I bought this beautiful Cod Fish from Costco last week and thought I need to find a good recipe that will not destroy the texture of this fish. I found by looking all over Google this fish stew recipe and just by reading over the ingredients I knew this was something I may enjoy. Though I’ve never had fish stew before I had to give it a try because of all the great reviews on it. It is a fantastic recipe and I took a reviewer’s advice and had some Sour Dough bread it, really nice touch. I found this at a site called “Woman’s day.”
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 1 1⁄2 cups each chopped onions and thinly sliced carrots
- 3 large cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tsp fennel seeds (optional)
- 1⁄2 tsp each dried thyme, salt and pepper
- 2 1⁄4 cups water
- 1 can (14 1⁄2 oz) reduced-sodium chicken broth
- 2 lb (about 5 medium) all-purpose potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-in. chunks
- 1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes
- 1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
- 1 lb thawed frozen or fresh cod or scrod fillets, cut in 1-in. chunks
- 1. Heat oil in a 4- to 5-qt pot over medium heat. Add onions and carrots; cook, stirring often, 5 minutes or until onions are translucent. Stir in garlic, fennel seeds, thyme, salt and pepper; cook, stirring, 1 minute or until fragrant.
2. Stir in water, broth and potatoes; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
3. Stir in tomatoes and tomato sauce; bring to a simmer. Stir in fish. Cover and simmer 5 minutes, or until fish is opaque at center.
