Fish Stew

For some odd reason I want a nice large bowl of fish stew. This need hit me today as I chauffeured Sweet Wife point to point. At each stop Her Highness allowed me to sit and wait. Thankfully I keep a couple of books in the car just for such emergencies.  Today I read Peter Mayle, his 'Year In Provence.'

As I'm sure you know chapters of the book cover each month of a year and if I remember correctly it was November where he wrote of fish stew...doesn't really matter, because tomorrow I shall make a batch of this delicious gift of the sea with a large baguette of toasted bread soaked with garlic and butter.  

Wish you were here to join us for dinner. Or, better yet, find a recipe and make your own....

Take care,

Stephen

  4. Oh, now that sounds good indeed. It's been a little while since I've had some. There is truly an art to it to get the fish cooked just right in the stew. When it's done right, it rocks on a cold day.

    1. You need to make a batch, Bubba. We arrived home from the fish market. I purchased six pounds of Vermilion Snapper (Red) and was shocked at the price, $6.99 per lb. Six pounds whole yields three pounds of fillets. The heads and backbones will be used for my stock. This is not an inexpensive dish. Thanks, my friend.

  6. That looks really good. There's a little Mexican food joint, La Costanita, here that makes a great seafood soup...looks a lot like the one in that image.

    1. The dish in the image is a Mediterranean fish stew. I've decided to make a rue and stick to Southern style today...the rue really enhances the flavor profile. Nice to see you back, KW. Thanks, Sweet Lady.
