Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 medium onions, halved and thinly sliced
  • 8 -10 garlic cloves, to taste, chopped
  • 6 -8 medium red potatoes, to taste, peeled and cut into large cubes

  • black pepper, freshly ground, to taste
  • 2 12-3 lbs white-fleshed fish, cleaned and gutted (grey mullet & whiting good choices)

  • 3 tablespoons parsley, chopped fresh flat leaf, for garnish


  1. Heat the butter and 1 tablespoon of the olive oil together in a large stewing pot or Dutch oven. Add the onions and garlic and cook over medium low heat, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the potatoes, season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring gently, until the potatoes are about half cooked, 10 to 12 minutes.
