Fish stew

Lately I have been cooking one pot dishes for Alex and myself. It’s so easy to cook that from preparation to serving the piping hot food takes about 30mins all in all. That’s just what I did today after returning from marketing with my mom in the morning and we needed a quick lunch for the three of us.

This fish stew recipe is an improved version of what I have cooked earlier this week. It’s also supposed to be a french-styled stew with the use of butter and fresh herb but since I don’t have fresh herb on hand, I just made do with the Italian dried herb seasonings that I have. The stew tasted good and the two boys lapped up the food. After the meal, hb told me that he’s a happy man. So I think it’s going to be a family staple! =)
