I learnt this recipe from my aunty back in my school days. Since then, I’ve been making this countless times. It’s good as a light meal when paired with bread or for a full meal, toss it up with pasta of choice.

The trick to making this delicious is to use good tomatoes. I usually buy the tomatoes that I like eating raw to cook this. Give this a try and let me know what you think of it.

Nothing could be easier than this fish stew. All the ingredients are mixed beforehand then added to a pan to stew. Cooking this does not take much time as by the time the fish is cooked, all other ingredients are done as well.

  1. Prepare the ingredients

    Cut tomatoes and onion into cubes.

    Have a taste. Add more salt and black pepper if needed.
