“While our crew cleaned the catch from our deep-sea fishing trip, my daughter, Shannon, created this impromptu stew from ingredients on-hand and cooked it in a pot, using an outdoor gas cooker. The crew ate every last bit, and we've been making it ever since. It can be made with any kind of fish; however, if a softer-flesh fish is used, it will tend to fall apart more during cooking, which some people may prefer. Kielbasa sausage or seafood, such as shrimp, could be added to this tasty stew. If you prefer, make this in a crock-pot.”
