... as in spicy fish stew!
Now I know 'fish' is kinda generic and I did this recipe before, but I'm trying to tweak it a bit because my family wants me to make this for Christmas dinner. Weird, yes, but Anthony and I kept raving about how good it was so they kept asking for it. So here's my first attempt at tweaking this recipe by adding barley and black eyed peas.
**This version uses a crock pot but if you prefer a stove, follow my original recipe here.**(makes about 10 servings)
- 3 tomatoes, chopped
- 3 zucchinis, chopped
- 1 jalapeno, finely diced
- 1 yellow onion
- 1.5 lbs. fish of choice, cubed
- 8 oz no-sodium tomato sauce
- 14 oz no-sodium stewed tomatoes
- 0.5 c uncooked barley
- 0.5 c uncooked black-eyed peas
- garlic, salt, and pepper to taste
1.) Combine barley, black-eyed peas, tomato sauce, stewed tomatoes, jalapeno, garlic, salt and pepper into crock pot.
2.) Add chopped onions and then chopped tomatoes.
3.) Add chopped zucchini and layer cubed pieces of fish on top. DO NOT MIX. Cover and cook on low for 6 - 8 hours or on high for 4 - 6 hours.
Good, but not as good as the first attempt. Will need to tweak it more and hopefully it'll be good for Christmas.
