This fish stew is very simple to make and so yummy. It can be served with Fufu or cooked rice. I love to make it with red snapper or Tilapia but any fish can be used for this recipe..
- 2 fresh fishes, I used red snapper
- 3 fresh tomatoes, mashed
- 2 tablespoons of tomato paste
- 1 large onion, sliced
- 4 shallots, finely sliced
- 4 garlic gloves, chopped
- A small piece of fresh ginger, grated
- Chili pepper, to taste
- 1 bouillon cube,
- Black pepper
- 150ml oil
- Few spaghetti for thickening the stew, optional
Step 1: Making the tomato Stew.
In a pot, heat the oil and add the onions and shallots. Add some salt and stir-fry the onions for 2 minutes.
Add garlic and fresh ginger. Add in the tomatoes and tomato paste, add the bouillon cube and black pepper.
Allow to cook on low heat for 10 min.
Step 2: Adding the fish.
Note: To add the fish in the tomato sauce, you have two options:
1- You can choose to fry the fish first in hot oil then add in the tomato sauce
2- Or add the fresh fish directly in the tomato sauce without frying it.
So add the fish in the tomato sauce and cook for 2 minutes.
Step 3: Add a liter of water and all the vegetables.. Add the spaghettis which is totally optional and the chili pepper to taste.
