Classic Family Favorite Fish Stew

Classic Family Favorite Fish Stew

Today we are having our Classic Family Favorite Fish Stew. I enjoy preparing this dish because it’s quick and easy and it’s a dish that my family loves to eat! The aroma and smell of this dish is delicious. So you know that the seasoning is just right.

I add a couple of drops of Piri-piri to give a little punch to the dish and it heats us up while we eat it. It’s the perfect stew for a cool day. Before cooking, I start by peeling and cutting up all the onions, butternut squash, zucchini, sweet bell pepper and potatoes. Cooking this dish takes about 15 minutes, that is why I recommend to prepare the vegetables first, so you don’t over cook them. If you enjoy comfy food, you will enjoy our Classic Family Favorite Fish Stew. We also have our Warm Comfy Homemade Veggie Soup, it is also full of goodness.
