thanks -

It's extremely "clean" and satisfying. With everything that is in it it can be considered a whole meal.

My fish stew recipe is easy to make and it's when I am eating it each time that I get amazed at how simple it looks and how tasty it is.I use whole fish and cut it into three and mainly tilapia or dorade(Find attached pic, I have no idea what it's called in English)

First prepare the fish, cleaning etc etc, then cut into three(I like the head too!), then in a pot add a tbs or two of veggie oil, then add a tin of chopped tomatoes and coriander leaves and a some garlic then heat put in the fish and immediately turn down the heat. Simmer until the fish is cooked.Yummy with rice.

The words "fish stew" are deceptive because stew means long cooking. You *might* stew most of the ingredients but the fish, shrimp, oysters, should be put in the pot only in the last 5-10 minutes. Otherwise you overcook the fish-seafood. Am I stating the obvious here?

I'm partial to tomato based instead of flour-cream-milk based fish soups. Good luck all!

That is VERY close to what I make - isn't it amazing how you get such full flavor and it's so easy?

Glazzguy - I think the term "stew" is used because it isn't "soupy". It is chunky and full of ingredients like a meat-based stew is. A stew by definition is meat/seafood/vegetables cooked by boiling or simmering - but there is no time limit attached.

Right you are KElf that a stew is more dense, not as soupy as a soup. But the prime directive here is to put the fish-seafood in, in the last 10 minutes probably even less. And to simmer when you put them in. Boiling = ruination

I would say to all look up a good cioppino recipe

I fully agree about the time - after looking back at most of these recipes they do call for the seafood to be added at the end - not stewed along with all the other ingredients.
