Jamaican Fish Recipes

I have adapted one of my jamaican fish recipes for the crockpot. If your fish fillets are small enough to fit into the crockpot whole, then do so, if not you will have to cut them up.

I would recommend that you use skinned fillets for this recipe - leave them as large as you can so that they are easy to get out of the crockpot.

You can use one type of fish or a mixture.

Jamaican Fish

  • 2 lb (1k) fish - tilapia, snapper, basa
  • 1 medium onion - peeled and chopped
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 sprigs of thyme or 1 tspn dried
  • 2 oz (50g) butter
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 pint fish stock or water
  • oil for frying
  • 2 tablespoon tomato puree

Set the crock pot to LOW.

Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the fish to seal - put it into the bottom of the crockpot.

Melt the butter in the same pan and fry the onion until soft then add the flour and mix to a roux.

Slowly stir in the soy sauce and cook for a couple of minutes, stirring all the time.

Stir in approx 1 pint (450ml) fish stock/water or mix of water and wine.

Add the tomato puree, thyme and season to taste.

Pour the sauce over the fish in the crockpot and cook for 4 hours.

The fish you choose for these recipes will depend on what's available - serve it with rice and peas or maybe boiled sweet potato.

I might even add a spoon of Jamaican Jerky Seasoning to it at the onion frying stage - your choice if you like it spicy, but a feature of Jamaican food is the spice.
