Why I Love This Recipe

A traditional Portuguese dish. You can choose your local fish. At home, we always choose 3 or 4 different fishes. Different types of fish such as horse mackerel, hake, sea bream, sea bass, etc.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 large onion
4 cloves of garlic
1 green pepper
400 g of tomato
0.5 dl of olive oil
1 bouquet of parsley
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon of sweet chili or Piri-Piri.
Salt q.s.
2 dl white wine
700 g of medium potatoes


Arrange the fish, cut the larger ones into pieces, and season with chopped garlic cloves, a sprig of parsley, bay leaf, sweet chili, salt, and pepper. Leave to marinate for 20 minutes.

Peel and wash onion, cut into slices.

Wash the tomatoes, remove the ends, and cut them into slices.

Peel and wash the potatoes, and cut them into slices.

Arrange and wash the green pepper, remove the pits. Then cut into strips.

Drizzle some olive oil in the pan and start ‘building up’ the Fish Stew.

Arrange alternately onion, pepper, tomato, potatoes, and fish, drizzle with marinade, olive oil, and white wine.

Cover and bring to the boil for 35 minutes, shaking the pan to not get caught in the bottom. After that time, remove from heat and serve.

Serve with bread and ice-cold white wine.
