Fish Stew

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Gerry sans Sanddunes

A fish stew from THE HARROWSMITH COOKBOOK. Ms. Nan Millette wrote "this recipe won top prize in a contest sponsored by the Sarnia Observer in 1982. Other vegetables, such as peas, beans, summer squash or corn may also be used." I did it straight up as written, just adding more tomatoes ... I threw in the whole tin of same ... and have added it to my comfort-food list. Thank you Nan.

This is a fast, simple, and delicious fish stew. My ingredients : 3 kinds of fish (leftovers in the fridge) shrimps (leftover too) white German Reisling wine celery, no leeks olive oil (avoiding butter) green peas whole can of Italian tomatoes I think the variety of the fish and avoiding flaking by not letting the fish simmer for a long time were key to this delicious recipe. Will definitely do this again and again. So simple, so hearty, so tasty. Next time, I will use fresh sage or mint leaves, yummy......thank you Gerry in Sanddunes
