Coconut Spiced Fish Stew
Total Time:
55 minutes
Active Time:
40 minutes


2 limes, for juice
4 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
2 medium sweet onions, coarsely chopped
3 medium bell peppers (assorted colors), coarsely chopped
4 fish fillets (such as tilapia, snapper, or cod); 1 1/2 lb
Large zip-top bag
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 cup white rice
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 (14.5-oz) can diced tomatoes with garlic, undrained
1 (14-oz) can light coconut milk
1/4 bunch fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped


  • Squeeze limes for juice (3 tablespoons).
  • Chop garlic, onions (2 cups), and peppers (3 cups).
  • Cut fish into 2-inch chunks (wash hands).


  1. Place in bag: lime juice, garlic, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper flakes; gently shake to blend. Add fish (wash hands) and seal bag tightly; let stand 20 minutes to marinate (or overnight).
  2. Prepare rice following package instructions (adding 1 tablespoon oil with rice). Preheat large stockpot on medium-high 2–3 minutes. Place remaining 2 tablespoons oil in pot, then stir in onions and peppers; cook and stir 3 minutes.
  3. Stir in fish mixture, tomatoes, and coconut milk. Reduce heat to low and cover; simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally (gently, to keep fish from breaking apart). Chop cilantro and stir into stew; cook 5 more minutes and until fish is opaque and separates easily. Serve over rice.
Always check fish for bones and cook to an internal temperature of 145°F.
