creole fish stew

Creole fish recipes are simple to cook - once you've got the ingredients together, you just stir it a couple of times and it's ready in less than 20 minutes.

This particular recipe is one that I've cooked many times - you can mix the fish if you like to give a variety - whatever's best on the day I always say.

The only fiddle about this recipe, is that you need to rinse the rice several times to get rid of most of the starch as it is served in its cooking liquid.

Put the rice in a sieve and run water through it until it is no longer cloudy - stir it round with your fingers.

This is a useful tip for any rice dish actually - even when you're boiling it plain to serve with something - it lets the grains separate properly.

Seafood Creole

  • 1 cup, 8 oz (225g) long grain rice rinsed
  • 2 tbspns olive oil
  • 2 cup size, 14 oz (400g) can chopped plum tomatoes
  • 1 tbspn tomato puree
  • 1 tspn dried basil
  • 1 large onion - peeled and diced
  • 1 green pepper - deseeded and diced
  • 2 tspn chilli powder - more if you like spicy food
  • 2 to 3 cups, 1 1/2 lbs (675g) white fish - mixed and cut into large cubes
  • 1 cup, 8 oz (225g) peeled shrimp

Heat the olive oil in a large casserole dish that you can use on the stove top.

Gently fry the onion and pepper until softened.

Add the rice and stir round until coated with oil - do this off the heat as you can easily burn uncooked rice at this stage.

Add the tomatoes, puree, basil and chilli powder. Cover the pot and simmer for about 10 minutes.

Give it all a good stir and then add the fish and prawns.

Cover and cook a further 10 minutes or so until the cod flakes and the rice is soft.

Serve hot - sprinkle with some chopped herbs if you like.
