Brazilian Fish Stew


As a busy mom, I am always looking for one-dish meal ideas.  This is a great paleo/gluten-free dish I found on Pinterest.  The original recipe is from The Gaia Health Blog.  It is simple to make and full of exotic flavor.  My current favorites – cilantro and lime juice – really make the dish come alive!

1 – 2 lb. fish fillet of choice
2 Tbsp. butter or coconut oil
1 large onion, thinly sliced
2 - 3 tsp garlic, minced
2 - 3 tsp ginger, diced
1 bell pepper, thinly sliced
2 tomatoes, diced
½ cup broth or water
4 green onions, finely chopped
1 bunch cilantro, roughly chopped
Sea salt and pepper, to taste
Juice of one lime

In a large pan, melt the butter over medium heat.  Add onion, garlic and ginger; sauté until translucent. Add the tomatoes, bell pepper and broth.  Cook until vegetables are tender.  Place fish over the vegetables, season with sea salt and pepper, and let cook through. Before serving sprinkle with green onion, cilantro and drizzle with lime juice.
