Little fishy in the brook...
I’m calling it Poor Woman’s Fish Stew, and I'm reeeeaaaallly sorry about the picture quality. Terrible lighting!
At any rate, I had some nice swai fillets that we had picked up two days ago and I needed to cook them. I sautéed up ½ a sliced small onion, 3 medium carrots, 1 medium zucchini, about 4 baby bella mushrooms, 1 clove garlic, fresh ground ginger. All of this in a saucepan with olive oil and curry oil over medium heat. I then added the zest of 1 lime, with the juice from ½ of it. I threw in salt and pepper, fresh thyme and chopped parsley. After that I added 1 tablespoon of tomato paste, some fake chicken stock, turmeric, and enough water to cover the vegetables. Let it simmer for a while. Finally, I added the swai and poached them on one side for 4 minutes, then flipped them and let cook for another three. I served all of this over brown rice.
It wasn’t half bad. But, not quite enough spice. Good amount of heat. I didn’t measure anything, of course. I’ll try it again and really measure out the spices this time and try to crank it up. I’d take some suggestions, of course!
OMG! I forgot to tell, I sold a piece from the Art Hop. I mean this to sound totally blasé. Did it sound totally blasé? Next round is on me!
