Mediterranean Inspired Fish Stew Recipe

Either catfish or tilapia can be used in a lot of fish stew recipes because they taste delicious and have a good, firm texture. This fish stew includes plenty of healthy, fresh vegetables and cilantro, garlic and a marinara sauce for a true taste of the Mediterranean. You can use any marinara sauce for this or even make your own. This is a tomato-rich stew which is packed with nutritious veggies and your choice of fish.

You can use frozen broccoli rather than fresh, as mentioned in the recipe ingredients, because the finished stew will be the same. Since this fish stew recipe contains fish, potatoes and vegetables, it is a complete meal and does not need any accompaniments. That is great news if you like making simple fish recipes in one pot without fussing over side dishes to go alongside. For a warming stew on a winter evening, try this satisfying, nutritious recipe because your family will love it.

This delicious Mediterranean inspired fish stew recipe is quite soupy but if you prefer something more chunky and less liquid, use less marinara sauce. If you do want plenty of liquid, serve some crusty bread on the side to soak up the wonderful fishy sauce. There is no excuse for plates which are not spotless after eating this delicious meal. It is so good everyone will want to lick the bowls clean!
