Portuguese Fish Stew

Recipe by Raquel Grinnell

A Tyler Florence recipe. Absolutely delicious and easy; I use ground chorizo and frozen, bagged mixed seafood (crab, shrimp, scallops) from Trader Joe's.

Delicious and easy, as you said :) I used merguez sausages in place of the chouri?o, but the taste is very close, so I don't think it was too different from the real thing. Also I've had this stew at my friend's in Portugal, and the taste of this is very close to it. Thanks for sharing!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a heavy 4 to 6-quart pot over medium flame. Add the onions, garlic, and sausage; cook, stirring with wooden spoon, until the sausage renders out some of its fat and the onions are soft.
  2. Toss in the herbs and then the potatoes, stir that around for a minute to coat in the oil. Pour in the chicken broth and bring up to a simmer.
  3. Add the kale, season with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes until the potatoes are nearly tender.
  4. Uncover the pot and add the clams; simmer, covered, for 15 minutes until the clams open. Add the fish and continue to cook for another 3 to 5 minutes until the fish is cooked. Garnish with chopped parsley and drizzle with olive oil.
