I told my husband that I would take the train this Thursday to join him for a while in Stuttgart. He said he would come and get me with the car this weekend. I think he didn’t trust me :D
Anyway, I had some fish in the freezer that I thought I should use before I’m dragged away; skate, cod and smoked haddock. I also had some Portuguese chorizo. So that’s why.
This impromptu recipe made a large pot. Invite the neighbors. I did and they were glad :)
Portuguese Fish Stew
3 Portuguese chorizo sausages, sliced
1 tbsp olive oil
2 onions, chopped
4-5 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tbsp paprika
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
3/4 cup white wine
3 cans diced tomatoes (about 14 ounces each)
2 cups water
1 large jar roasted red bell peppers, sliced
1 large can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
Approximately, 1 lb each smoked haddock, skate and cod, cut into chunks
Brown the chorizo slices in the olive oil. Remove all but 2 tablespoons of the oil in the pan, add the onions and garlic and saute until the onion is soft. Add the paprika and crushed red, stirring for about 1 minute. Add the wine and boil down for about 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes and the water, then simmer for 15 minutes. Add the peppers and chickpeas, then simmer for another 15 minutes.
Gently stir in the fish and simmer for 7-10 minutes.
Wine suggestion: Spanish or Portuguese red
