Make this fast, easy and delicious African-Style Fish Stew Recipe at home or camp

Chad LaChance, host of Fishful Thinker TV on World Fishing Network, shows you how to make an easy fishstew. This African-Style Fish Stew Recipe can be made with white bass or any white-flesh fish you have.

Serves: 4
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • ¾ pound white bass, cut into chunks
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ onion
  • 2 ½ cloves garlic
  • ½ can diced tomatoes
  • Bell peppers, sliced
  • ½ can coconut milk
  • Lemon juice
  • Lime juice
  • Paprika
  • Cumin
  • Dried cilantro
  • Green onions, sliced
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Directions:


  1. To prepare the fish, cut up white bass into chunks. Marinade the fish with lemon juice, lime juice, paprika, cumin and salt. Set aside for approximately 20 minutes.

  2. Put olive oil in a large saucepan. Add chopped onions and let cook a minute or two. Add a pinch of salt.

  3. Add garlic, diced tomatoes and sliced bell peppers to the saucepan. Allow some of the liquid from the tomatoes to cook out. Once it does, turn the stove on low.

  4. Add a half a can of coconut milk, salt and freshly ground black pepper to the pan.

  5. Add fish chunks and marinade to stew. Stir to mix in the bass; add dried cilantro. Put a lid on the pan and let the fish stew cook for approximately 10 minutes or until the fish flakes apart.

  6. Once done, turn off the stove. Let the fish stew rest for about 10 minutes (to let the flavors settle).

  7. Garnish African-Style Fish Stew with green onions and serve. Enjoy!
