Tomato and Fish Stew Recipe

March 17, 2011 § 1 Comment

I'm a superb eater of food but not much of a food stylist

Tonight’s healthy and easy dinner idea comes from the autumn issue of Alive Australia magazine, which you can find free of charge at your local health and wellness retailer.

Here is the recipe straight from the magazine:this is a snap from the magazine itself…

If you can’t handle the heat…. then stay out of the kitchen. No wait, I mean…. use less chilli flakes. It’s a spicy dish.

We replaced the white fish fillets and haddock with a couple of King Fish fillets. We visit the fish monger every Saturday and the King Fish looked like an excellent, hearty fish for a stew. Having said that, after I checked out Australia’s Sustainable Seafood Guide, I’m now aware I could have picked a better option in regards to ethical and sustainable eating. Anyhoo…  lesson learnt.

Also, I didn’t bother serving with crusty bread. Typically I like to avoid grainy/starchy foods at night to prevent bloating.

Healthy notes:

Look for a can of diced tomatoes with no added salt or sugar.

Consider using organic vegetables. Celery sits at the top of the Dirty Dozen list (i.e has the highest level of pesticide contamination) with carrots not too far behind. For vegetables like onions which rank the best, I don’t bother with buying organic because it can get a bit expensive.

Enjoy (because I sure did)!
