When I was growing up we always had fish on Friday. My Mom would always make something delicious.
This is a fish stew that takes twenty minutes.
Three tablespoons of olive oil
One chopped onion
three cloves of chopped garlic
Two pounds of a thick white skinless, boneless white fish. Haddock, cod, tilapia, anything on sale is good.
Cut into one inch pieces.
One pound of calamari rings
One pound of medium peeled shrimp
1/2 teaspoon of oregano
Six basil leaves
One large can of diced tomatoes
Two teaspoons of tomato paste
One can of Rotelle tomatoes.
One small can of tomato sauce
Saute the onion and garlic in three tablespoons of olive oil
Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, oregano and basil
Bring this to a boil then turn down to a medium heat.
Season with salt and pepper
Put all the fish into the pan and cover till the fish is flakey.
This should only take about ten to fifteen minutes. Keep at a simmer till you are ready to eat
I serve it in bowls with hot crusty rolls.
The broth is great for dipping.
Make an arugula salad with black olives, red onion, parmesan cheese strips and lemon dressing.
You can add anything to this dish.
Mix up the type of fish. Add clams , mussels , crab meat or small cooked potatoes.
This is almost a foul proof recipe.
