This is my speedy take on Portuguese fish stew. Its is hearty and filling and perfect for a protein rich, belly-warming fall dinner. It pairs best with crusty bread and a glass of red wine–yes, it is white fish, but it also has sausage and it is simmered in a spicy tomato broth. So, yes, pour yourself a glass and make this stew for your next family dinner.
1lb/6 links of spicy sausage (like chorizo)
1 lb of a fresh white flakey fish ( cod/pollock/haddock)
1 tbsp of parsley, oregano, thyme and red pepper flakes
1 tbsp of olive oil
1/2 tbsp garlic, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1, 15 oz can of diced tomatoes
salt and pepper to taste
Add 1/2 tbsp of oil and fry the cut sausage pieces til brown and set aside.
In the same pan, add 1/2 tbsp of oil in a saucepan and saute garlic and onion till pale golden.
Add the tomatoes and simmer for a few minutes and then add the sausage, herbs and chilli flakes.
At the very end add the fresh pieces of fish, adjust salt and pepper and simmer till fish is cooked through–about 7-8 mins.
Serve hot with bread and wine !
