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..

Ingredients

  • 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
  • Potatoes,
  • Carrots
  • Cabbage
  • 150ml oil
  • Few spaghetti for thickening the stew, optional

Direction:

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.
