Easy Dinners: Mediterranean Fish Stew

Hey Everyone! What a beautiful day this Good Friday has turned out to be so far! And on such a beautiful day, I thought I would share a recipe from my Italian Heritage that I just LOVE! Its full of cheap ingredients readily available just about anywhere, and they are in season all year long! Keep in mind, when choosing a fish, you can go with catfish, monk fish, tilapia, snapper, anything that is on sale basically. I would highly advise against salmon, tuna, and shark, but other than that, I would say just about anything! :) Enjoy, and remember the sacrifice that took place to make this day such a beautiful gift!

Mediterranean Fish Stew
Grocery List:
2 tsp olive oil
4 small red potatoes (1 lb), cut into chunks
1 bag frozen pepper stir-fry mix
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/3 cup water
1 jar marinara sauce
1 lb tilapia or catfish fillets, cut into 3-in. pieces
1/4 cup sliced pimiento-stuffed green olives
2 Tbsp chopped cilantro

How to make it:
1. Heat oil in a large nonstick soup pot over medium-high heat. Spread frozen peppers in an even layer, sprinkle with garlic. Cover; cook 5 minutes.

2. In seperate pot, boil enough water to cover potatoes, and cook until tender, about 10-15 minutes, then drain.

3. Add water to pepper/garlic mix, cover and reduce heat. Stir in potatoes. Add marinara sauce and bring to a boil. Reduce heat; place fish on top. Cover and simmer 4 to 5 minutes until fish is just cooked through. Sprinkle with olives and cilantro.
