2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep the ingredients

  • Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
  • Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell pepper; coarsely chop the pepper.
  • Trim the root end from the fennel. Cut the fennel lengthwise into quarters and cut away the core; cut the quarters into ½-inch pieces.
  • Coarsely chop the almonds for garnish.
  • Pat the fish dry with a paper towel. If using pollock, season generously with salt and pepper. If using snapper, cut into 1-inch pieces and season lightly with salt and pepper; discard the snapper skin.


Cook the stew

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, bell pepper, and fennel, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the sweet smoked paprika and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in ¼ cup [½ cup] white wine (from your pantry) or water, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 1 minute.
Add the vegetable broth and tomato sauce base and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, nestle the fish in the sauce, cover, and cook until the fish is opaque and cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the fish stew to individual bowls, garnish with the almonds, and serve.
