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

Wash produce before use


Prep the vegetables; start the stew

  • Peel the onion, cut in half lengthwise, and thinly slice.
  • Scrub or peel the sweet potato. Cut the potato into ½-inch pieces.
In a large sauce pot over medium heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season generously with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the sweet potato and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 3 to 4 minutes.
Add the kale, sun-dried tomatoes, fire-roasted tomatoes, coconut milk, and 1 cup [2 cups] water and season generously with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the potato is tender and the kale is wilted, 8 to 10 minutes.
While the stew cooks, prepare the fish.


Prep and cook the fish

Prep and cook instructions are almost identical for both fish options.
  • Pat the fish dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
In a medium frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the fish (in a single layer for the pollock) and cook, turning once, until lightly browned and cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes for pollock and 6 to 10 minutes for halibut. Transfer to a plate.
While the fish cooks, prepare the lemon and finish the stew.


Prep the lemon; finish the stew

  • Zest the lemon; cut into wedges for garnish. [Zest both lemons; cut 1 lemon into wedges. Save the remaining zested lemon.]
Remove the stew from the heat and stir in 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] lemon zest. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the stew to individual bowls and top with the fish. Serve the lemon wedges on the side.
