Spicy Fish Stew

Recipe by Hey Jude

This is spicy, tasty and easy. Adapted from 'A Spoonful of Ginger', one of my favorite Nina Simonds cookbooks. The original calls for cod, I use orange roughy, and I also cut down the amount of red onions for my family's taste....add more if you like. This is good with steamed rice and crusty bread.

This is terrific! I added a dry white wine instead of the sake and also clamato juice instead of the water. My husband asked me to make this again the following week.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a 6-quart dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat until hot; add the garlic, onions, red chiles and green peppers.
  2. Saute about 5-7 minutes, until the onions are slightly transparent and the peppers are tender.
  3. Add the tomatoes, rice wine, clam juice, salt and pepper and bring to a boil; reduce the heat to low and simmer uncovered for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Add the fish pieces to the tomato mixture, toss to coat, cover and simmer for about 10-12 minutes, or till fish flakes easily.
  5. Taste for seasoning, adding more salt if necessary and sprinkle with minced scallion greens.
