Two Christmases ago, my Aunt made an incredible fish stew that honestly I have been thinking about since then. I asked her for the recipe gobs of times and unfortunately she was never able to find it however, what she could tell me was that is had tomato, fennel, onion, celeriac (celery root), carrots, and would work with whatever combination of spices you were in the mood for. Definitely not a complete recipe, but at least a start and honestly pretty good considered she has cooked countless meals since then. So here is my version of her simple fish stew. I served mine over some couscous but it would be great on it’s own or over brown rice or pasta. Also, although this recipe has a lot of ingredients, it really is quote simple compared to a lot of fish stew recipes.
