Tasty White Fish Stew oozing with rich tomato sauce and earthy flavors. A light meal that is quick and easy to whip and can be customized easily according to preference.
The flavors in this stew/soup are amazing to the palette. Why I say stew/soup. If you want to make this as a stew then prepare some rice, whole-wheat couscous, or whatever rocks your boat. If having it with soup enjoy it with some French Baguettes.
