After a trip to the Islands, Clay was craving something tropical and healthy for dinner. Here’s a great treat!
Caribbean Fish Stew
2 15 oz cans Diced Tomatoes (no salt added)
1 6 oz can Tomato Sauce (no salt added)
1 Cup Vegetable Stock
1/2 Can Coconut Milk
1 Red Onion – chopped
2 Cloves Garlic – chopped
2 Red Peppers (sweet) – chopped
1 Jalepeno Pepper – chopped (seeds and ribs included)
1 pound Fish (Monk Fish, Red Snapper, Swordfish or Mahi Mahi – firm fish that won’t flake), Shrimp, Scallops or a combination.
Cliantro for garnish
Saute onion and garlic in a splash of olive oil until they begin to soften. Add red and hot peppers and cook for 3 minutes. Add tomatoes, tomato sauce and vegetable stock. Cook for 10 minutes to create sauce. Add fish, shrimp, and/or scallops and cook until firm, about 7 minutes.
Stir in coconut milk just and heat through.
Serve over rice and garnish with cilantro.
