Typically, when we buy fish, we tend to make the same three meals over and over again: fish fried rice, fried fish, or breaded and flavored fish with vegetables. It doesn’t matter what kind of fish it is, they always end up in one of these three entrees. So, we decided to try something different when we got a great deal for a big bag of small Tilapia fillets. And, what do you do when you want to try a new recipe? You go to Pinterest. As we were scrolling down, we found this very unique looking recipe and wanted to make a creation based on it.
** Original idea –> Brazilian Fish Stew **
But, since knowing it was Brazilian, and knowing it would be soupy, I adjusted to kind of dilute the same amount of spices (to make it palatable for me) and make it a thicker stew. (Although Justin would’ve preferred it to be more soupy with more spices.)
3) In a stew pot, pour the softly sauteed vegetables, the marinated fish, and the rest of the ingredients (don’t drain the tomatoes). Cook on medium high for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
