It is a wonderful and sunny day today. It is a day that works very well with a stew…a fish stew. So in today’s menu there will be a light, spicy and easy recipe folllowed from “Cooking for Two”, 1996 by Richard Olney and Simon Wheeler. In a few minutes it is ready. If you cook a side dish, a little longer but not too long. 🙂
