Easy Cod Stew | Olives & Garlic

Hey guys, guess what?

I started shopping for the Holiday’s today. :)

I never start this early but this year I promised myself not to allow the insanity get the best of me. I figured that if I start now, I can thoroughly enjoy the spirit of Christmas. In the past I always waited till the last minute, finding myself going crazy looking for that special toy.

Not this year!

The recipe I am about to share with you was born out of my forgetfulness. Yes, you read that right. I was going to be making my Cod Baked with Chorizo & Cannellini Beans, but forgot to buy chorizo. Most of the time I hate when that happens, but not this time.

This dish is sort of a mix between Bouillabaisse and Cioppino. Best of all it’s really good.

I also made a fresh parsley garnish to go along with this stew. Finely chop a handful of fresh parsley, mix in a little olive oil and chili garlic paste. Stir to combine. It should be the same consistency as a Chimichurri. This garnish adds wonderful fresh flavor to the entire dish. I strongly recommend making it.

  1. Kathy, this stew looks delicious! I can’t wait to try it. And isn’t it great sometimes when you forget an ingredient? Forces you to get creative and make a dish you may have never thought of.
