Ocean Perch stew

Poached Ocean perch Stew

Instead of grilling or frying, this is another quick and easy way to make a delicious seafood meal.

-Fresh ocean perch filets

2 cloves garlic
1/2 cup strained tomato
1/4 cup salsa (prepared salsa is fine, I used a gourmet sofrito condiment that comes in a jar)

Black pepper

2 tbsp oil

Heat the oil and sautee the garlic until fragrant on medium heat. Add tomato and fry around, add sofrito or salsa and season.

Once it is hot poach the fish in it by placing them into the sauce and then covering and simmering the heat until the fish is done, when it is white and flakes apart it should be fine. 15 minutes or so.

Serve with couscous and garnish with fresh cilantro.

For lemony couscous

Boil the kettle.

Add desired amount of couscous in a bowl, stir in a little bit of oil and season with salt, also zest a bit of lemon and mix well until all the grains are coated with the oil.

Add equal parts hot boiled water or stock as the couscous and cover with plastic wrap. Allow to sit for 5-7 minutes then fluff with a fork.
