You guys know I like food on the gourmet side of things. In fact, I did several videos making homemade meatballs from scratch and using it for Italian wedding soup, lasagna, and all kinds of stuff that I totally botched and unfortunately will not be able to post :(
But I’m no stranger to the?absurdly simple, quick, painless, and foolproof – and that’s also typically what most people in today’s day and age need to make simple, healthy, home-cooked food a practical possibility. And well, that’s what today’s dish – a simple fish stew made with frozen fish fillets and some store-bought salsa, is all about.
Enhance this dish with all kinds of added goodies – like fresh corn, spinach, mussels, shrimp, clams, okra, saffron, herbs like cilantro or oregano,?or whatever floats your boat.?Dump it all over some rice?or slurp it up with bread if you are one of those gluten-eating daredevils like me!
How to RAISE YOUR METABOLISM.
Fish stew is a classic go-to in our house, but being in Hawaii, we use fresh fish seared in butter or bacon fat, canned coconut milk, and Thai curry paste. Add in the spices and veggies your heart desires!
When I lived in Maui Round 1 I went fishing and caught a big short-billed spearfish, portioned it up, and threw like 60 fish portions in the freezer. The fish was so good. So oily and flavorful.
I would sweat onion and celery in butter, then add fish and tomatoes and lots of paprika and cayenne pepper. Simmered it covered for a while and added enough salt to make it money. Served over brown rice.
My girlfriend at the time and I ate this almost every night for a month and a half. We felt great and there was nothing else on the planet we wanted to eat more than this every night. It was totally satisfying on every level.
I'd love a Thai version with lots of hot green peppers (like Serranos), ginger, lemongrass, etc. as well. I also make a great Japanese-style fish stew too, with Soba noodles.
Any way you do it, can't lose.
This entry reminds me of Creole. I need to eat more gumbo and jambalaya.
Oily fish huh? But surely thats loaded with the lethal O6+O3 leading to premature aging, dying and general death?
Really nice to have some 180 Kitchen stuff on here!
Was really needing some of it; please keep it comin'
lovin' this blog as always!
oily PUFA-rich fish..hmmm… keep contradicting yourself..
Yeah I'm sure that 1 gram or so of omega 3 in there was sheer death haha. I'm lucky to be alive!
Most seafood has virtually no omega 6 at all.
If you think that's a contradiction you should have seen my at my grandparents' house last week eating Lay's potato chips and chicken salad covered in mayonaise!
Mayo is largely MUFA no? That should be acceptable in small quantities?
Marty Stone, you're comments section seems to have been picked up during the rapture! Maybe you should have an entire Ray Peat year to get your following back to an all-time high.
