Fav Fish Stew

Mine is very simple, sweat onions and garlic plus cubes of waxy potatoes in a pan, add enough white wine to cover the simmer till the pots are nearly done, sit any thick white fish steaks on top, put a cartouche on top and simmer till fish is done.

What is your favorite recipe.

My fav Fish Stew is:

Cioppino
Alaskan Cod, Scallops, Mussels, and Shrimp
in a sauce that contains crushed and diced
tomatoes, water, burgundy wine, onions,
clams w/clam juice, olive oil, celery, mushrooms, garlic,
and green bell peppers.

I like Cioppino best of all.
A good sourdough bread with it too.

Cullen Skink, or maybe a hotchpotch of various fish to which I would add haricot beans, various veg including potatoes, add some parmesan and turn it into a form of pistou.

My favourite ? Now that would be stuffed tomatoes containing crumbled feta and ground beef.

Another vote for ciopinno. Manhattan chowder comes a close second, but that gets us into an unnecessary discussion of definition about stew vs. soup and fish vs. seafood. I'm impressed with, and will devour, any "stew" with fish meat that has not disintegrated. What are the best fish for stewing? Cod holds up better than most; can anyone suggest others?

PS. mollyanne & 4meandthen have clever new nicks (that appear to have been matching costumes at a Halloween party!)

I had to google Cullen Skink to find out what it is.
It sounds great!
A smoked haddock chowder.

So comforting is Cullen Skink. Especially on cold days when the wind is blowing shrill and hard, rain lashing the windows and the fire is lit and there's this bowl of lovely smokey fishy soup, a crust of bread and mmmm, this is the food that I like. I'll make a lot so to have it again. And again. Sometimes two large bowls.
