Fish Stew

Cooking fish with vegetables is common in the Eastern regions of India. You can add lots of vegetables and use okra to thicken the sauce.

2 tablespoons
coconut oil or ghee
1 teaspoon
cumin seeds
onion, chopped
red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 teaspoon
1 teaspoon
ground cumin
1 teaspoon
ground coriander
(14 oz) can diced tomatoes
large potatoes or other root veggies like turnip (chopped into 1" pieces)
4 cups
leafy greens, roughly chopped (kale, spinach, chard)
okra, sliced
2 cups
water or stock
wild caught cod filet per person (cut into 1" chunks)


Heat oil or ghee in a pan over medium heat. When the oil is hot, toast the cumin seeds until fragrant, about 30 sec. Add the onion, pepper, garlic, chili, and salt. Saute until onion is soft, about 5 mins. Stir in the ground cumin and coriander and saute another minute or two. Add the tomatoes, potatoes, and stock. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 mins. Add fish chunks and simmer another 5 - 6 mins. Add greens at the end, just long enough for them to brighten in color, but not to overcook.  (Recipe♦411)
