About this recipe: A splendidly easy fish stew recipe that is ready in the time it takes to boil some rice. Improvise with any fresh herbs you may have to hand, or different seasonings. Instead of cod you can use tilapia, haddock or almost any other white fish.
Try this recipe with inexpensive fresh coley or pouting. They both belong to the cod family but are much cheaper and available in larger supermarkets or fishmongers.
A quick and easy Catfish stew! For a fresher taste, I have adapted the recipe, but only slightly. I use catfish nuggets and Ro-Tel tomatoes. I use fresh celery, onion, garlic clove, a strip of lemon peel and fresh thyme, when available. I use hot pepper flakes, instead of hot pepper sauce, and no salt. Diners are able to add salt, or not, to their own taste. - 30 Jul 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Easy and fast! Tasted wonderful, will be making again. I added red pepper flakes and used diced tomatoes with garlic and olive oil. Added okra too. It was fabulous. - 21 Apr 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Well, I guess I've never tasted the original recipe. But this sounded good, so I tried it. It was very fishy & nobody would eat it, including me. Sorry to say I wasted alot of money & alot of catfish, only to throw it down the drain. - 22 Jun 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
