I always forget how satisfying stew are to make.  After we finished our organic meat order and were waiting for our next one to be delivered, we ventured into getting more seafood.

I love squash in stews, it adds tons of flavour and acts as a great thickening agent as it falls apart.  This stew is uber easy to make as long as you do stuff in the right order to avoid over or under cooking anything.

Three types of fish: cod, salmon and red snapper with some hearty root vegetables like rainbow carrots, red kuri squash and red pearl onions!

Here’s the recipe!

What you need!
1/2 red kuri squash, peeled and cubed
6-8 small red onions
1 tbsp minced garlic
4-5 rainbow carrots
2lbs assorted fish cubed
500mL chicken stock
olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
2 tsp tarragon

What to do!

1. Peel the onions and cut in half.  Dump them in a large pot with some olive oil on medium heat and sautee until they just start turning golden.  Add in the mince garlic.

2.  Meanwhile, cut your carrots into cubes…here we have rainbow carrots yay!

3.  Cut up half the red kuri squash, peel and cube.

4.  When the onions are starting to go transparent, pour in a tiny bit of the chicken stock.  Scrap the pan at the bottom to get all the brown bits and then pour in the rest of the stock.  Turn up the heat!

5.  Dump in the squash and carrots.  Give it a quick stir, cover with lid and turn down stove to simmer and cook until veggies are soft.

6.  Once your veggies are to your liking season with salt and pepper.  Gently fold in the cubed fish.  Cook for about 5 minutes gently stirring all the time.  Fish takes no time at all to cook!  Add in the tarragon, stir gently and scoop out a big ol bowl for yourself!
