Saffron Fish Stew

saffron soup

Can I say YUM!  This was the perfect stew for a frigid NYC night.  However, going to the grocery store on a Sunday in NYC was not my idea of a peaceful evening – I really have to take advantage of not working right now…grocery shopping 2pm on weekdays only!

I altered the recipe and added actual fennel & shrimp.  Regardless the recipe is very straightforward and only took 20min to make.  ENJOY!

  • Grab a cast iron pot or soup pot – add a 1T EVOO and turn heat to medium
  • Dice up 1 yellow onion & a fennel head – toss in pot
  • Add 1t ground fennel, 1/2t ground coriander, 2t minced garlic & a few thyme sprigs
  • Saute & stir for about 5minutes
  • Grate 1/2t orange rind over the pot, 1/4t crushed saffron, 1.5C water, 1.5C clam juice, 14oz undrained diced tomatoes & a 14oz can of great northern beans
  • Once boiling add 1lb of cut up flounder & 16 deveined/detailed shrimp
  • Cook for 5minutes or until fish is white

Top with fresh thyme leaves & serve with whole wheat sourdough bread – double YUM (YUM)!
