It’s so brutally hot in Florida you wouldn’t think we would want a bowl of hot soup. Or stew. Most times that is true……….but no matter what the weather, I always come back to soup as a natural go-to lunch or starter. Call me crazy….I have been called far worse. Really.
Awhile back we tried the Wahoo fish. This is such a meaty type fish that we ended up with leftovers. A stew seemed in order for the grilled chunks remaining and that’s just what we made.
1 pound cod (or in our case Wahoo)
2 TB cooking oil or butter
½ cup celery
2 cups raw potato, diced
½ cup carrots
2 cups boiling water
1 teaspoon salt and a shake of pepper
1 cup milk (I decadently used ½ and ½ )
Cut the fish in bite sized pieces while you are melting the butter in a saucepan. Just put that fish aside for now.
Cook the onion and celery.
After they are soft, add potatoes, carrots, water, salt and pepper. Simmer 15 minutes.
Now add the fish and milk…heat it without boiling it.
I don’t care if it is hot outside – we are big fans of soups and stews. Fills you, nourishes you and it’s simple healthy fare.
