Provençal Fish Stew Recipe

If you're concerned about the grouper overpowering the light, fresh taste of this stew, you can rest easy. Grouper is a mild fish, and it quickly absorbs the flavors with which it is seasoned. Wait until the last 3 minutes to add the shrimp and fish; they don't need to cook long.  If you don't want to use the wine, you can replace it with 1/4 cup of fish stock, chicken broth, or water.

1. Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add leek, fennel, and garlic to pan; sauté 4 minutes or until tender. Stir in tomatoes, broth, wine, and 1 tablespoon parsley; bring to a boil. Add fish and shrimp; cook 3 minutes or until done. Sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons parsley, and garnish with parsley sprigs, if desired.

Choice Ingredient

Fennel, an aromatic plant native to the Mediterranean region, has licorice-like flavor and is delicious raw or cooked. Chopped and sautéed, the fennel bulb adds body and rich flavor to soups. Look for small, heavy, white bulbs that are firm and free of cracks, browning, or moist areas. Store fennel bulbs in a perforated plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
