Curried Fish Stew
This recipe was passed on to me…and I am passing it on to you all. I am not a huge seafood fan, nor do I like curry. My friend says this recipe is amazing though. It is high in sodium I might add.
Vegetable cooking spray, as needed
4 scallions, white part and 1″ green, thinly sliced
3 large garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp minced fresh ginger
1 1/2 Tbs Indian curry powder
2 cups bottled clam juice
2 large baking potatoes, peeled, cubed
3 carrots, peeled, sliced
2 small zucchini, diced
1/2 tsp grated lime zest
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground cloves
2 lbs boneless skinless firm white fish, cubed (such as monkfish, halibut, grouper, or red snapper)
1 1/2 tsp fresh lime juice
3 Tbs fresh cilantro, with extra for garnish
1 Tbs unsweetened flaked coconut, (optional)
1 Lightly spray a nonstick covered pot with cooking spray. Add the scallions, garlic, and ginger. Stir and cook over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add the curry and stir for 1 minute.
2 Add the clam broth, stirring to incorporate. Stir in the potatoes, carrot, zucchini, lime zest, cinnamon, and cloves. Partially cover and simmer for 20 minutes until the potatoes and vegetables are cooked.
3 Add the cubed fish, lime juice, and cilantro; simmer, stirring occasionally, until the fish is cooked through, about 10 minutes.
4 To serve, place the stew in a serving dish. Garnish with the coconut and extra cilantro.
