Stew Fish Recipe | BROWN STEW FISH

Today I’m going to teach you how to take
this, some leftover fried fish and combine it along with some simple
ingredients to create this–a tantalizing and appetizing stewed fish. Best part is
that you can achieve this in less than thirty minutes and I’ll show you how! The
landscapers will be here in a couple of hours to cut the overgrown lawn and
before I even get to lunch I need to unwind after a very hectic week, first
I’ll take a walk around the yard and see what’s happening in the garden, then I’ll
have a quick breakfast of doubles that we bought last night in Queens, and then
we’ll go to the farmers market==there I find inspiration and I’ll pick up a few
goodies for the week. When we’re done at the farmers market, I’ll head back to the
kitchen and there you can join me and I’ll teach you how to make this
delicious dish of Trini Stewed Fish! Now we’re headed back to the kitchen to
prepare lunch and today’s lunch was inspired by some fried fish that my
cousin sent to me from Trinidad. Today am using minced garlic, a sliced carrot
julienned sweet bell pepper, a whole onion sliced, minced parsley, celery,
scallions and a couple of cherry peppers, ketchup and brown sugar for browning. The only challenge I have today friends
is removing this caterpillar from my seasoning. I’m attempting to cut off the
caterpillar with a pair of scissors in one end and the camera in the other hand. I’m gonna take a few seconds here to
check for any more caterpillars before we proceed!! To begin, we’ll heat oil in a medium
sized pot over medium heat, then we will add the brown sugar, we are using the same stewing process similar to that of stewed chicken or the pelau. You’ll know
that the brown sugar is ready when four things happen 1. it bubbles 2. it froths
3. it expands and 4. it darkens. There is always some smoking involved, that’s why I do it outside as much as I can but inside is quite fine as well. Next to keep the process simple I’m going to add all my chopped ingredients. I usually add
the ketchup directly to the burned sugar but because of the risk of fire, and it
occurred recently, I’m going to add it after I add the chopped ingredients so
that it does not splash as much. When stewing at home I recommend you use a very deep pot but today I am using a shallow pan, just for the sake of demonstration. I’ll
give it a good stir. We’re going to attempt to cook the ketchup in the oil
along with the brown sugar. As I said before, you can add the ketchup directly
to the brown sugar only if you’re using a very deep pot. You’ll cook this for about
ten to fifteen minutes until all the ingredients break down and it’s thoroughly combined, but as I mentioned in my last video stirring is the secret that brings
all the flavors together. Next I’ll add two chopped plum tomatoes. It smells heavenly right now. Next I’ll
add some salt and you will see me adding salt throughout the process, not a lot of
salt at one time, but little sprinklings of salt just to get it to the right
level. This is the most important part of the
process my friends so be patient it’s going to be done soon! Now that the ingredients have also
surrendered to each other, they’ve broken down, melded together and the flavors are concentrated, you add a little water to the pot and we’re doing that so that
once you add the fish to the pot in the next step the flavors will coat easily
on the fish. And we’re going to do this gently so
that we don’t break the fish up and this is just another reason why you need to
use a firm fish to make this dish. I’ve used carite or king fish or even red
snapper. Next we’ll add water, and you can add
hot water to expedite the cooking and we are adding water, not only to create a lot of delicious sauce, but to also help unify the flavors of the fish along with
the ingredients of the herbs in the sauce. When it comes to a boil reduce the heat to low that allow it to simmer for about 10 to 15 more minutes. At any
point the liquid evaporates too quickly you can also always add more water but
keep in mind that you need to add more salt to ensure that the dish is
flavorful! And there you have it my friends simple
Trini stewed fish. You can have this with jasmine rice, flour or corn meal or sada roti. We are going to make a salad now and enjoy our lunch. I hope you enjoyed this video Please give me a thumbs up, click on the

  6. Why you digging up the fish like that you just mess it up,You know a way to do it is good the pot on both sides and slowly shake it up

  7. Looks delicious! I will definitely be trying this version!
    My mother prepared it almost the same, but without the burnt sugar. It was mostly tomato/tomato paste based, garlic, onion, fine thyme, pinch of brown sugar, fresh black pepper, and lots of fresh basil! I add a few capers to change it up a bit now😊
