Terrific Fish Stew and Wine Recipe with Sun-Dried Tomatoes
This easy tilapia stew recipe is flavored with clam juice, sun-dried tomatoes and more. It works best with tilapia but you could substitute scallops or shrimp if you prefer. Add some mushrooms and celery when you add the onion and garlic to the oil if you want, for extra texture and flavor. Chop them up finely to add more flavor than texture and leave them chunky if that is the kind of finish you prefer. Use fresh parsley in this recipe – it gives a much fresher and nicer flavor than dried parsley and it is not expensive. In fact you could grow your own in the yard or in a window-box.
If you do not have sun-dried tomatoes, use one chopped fresh tomato instead. The flavor will be a little different but still good. The clam juice is excellent in this recipe and it is where most of the flavor comes from. This wonderful seafood taste is complemented by the garlic, tomatoes, parsley, wine and fish, as well as any seasonings you choose to add at the end.
The key to this tilapia stew recipe is that you must taste it as you go, adding a little more of this or a little more of that. That is what professional chefs do, to ensure a dish tastes just right, and it is a good cooking habit to have. When the fish is cooked, you can add salt, pepper, Tabasco sauce, oregano, and thyme. You do not have to add all these ingredients – you might want to omit some. Just keep tasting the stew and stop tinkering with it as soon as the seasonings are correct. You will be able to taste when the flavor is just right. Serve this tilapia stew in bowls, with your choice of fresh bread or boiled white rice.
