Well, Thanksgiving is over and Christmas is right around the corner but in the mean time, in between the insanity, shopping, hanging of lights, and planning yet ANOTHER holiday meal, we all still need to eat. Here’s a delicious and amazingly easy seafood stew recipe that I would like to share with you. Thank you to my dear friend Jillian for sharing this recipe with me, this is now one of our new favorites! If your kiddos have turned their noses up to seafood before, this might be the meal that changes their minds.
Caribbean Seafood Stew
2 lbs of raw seafood (I used 1 lb of wild caught shrimp and 1 lb of mahi mahi pieces, both from Trader Joe’s)
1 yellow onion, diced
5 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons cumin
1 bunch cilantro
3 tomatoes, chopped
1 can coconut milk
1 tbsp coconut oil
Sea salt and black pepper to taste.
Dice up the stems of the cilantro bunch and set aside. In a large soup pot saute the onions in the coconut oil. When the onions start to turn brown, add the garlic and the cilantro stems and saute for another 2-3 onions. Add the tomatoes, cumin, salt and pepper, mix well and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Add the coconut milk and bring to a simmer. Add the seafood and cook for another 3-5 minutes or until the seafood is done. Serve with the cilantro leaves on top as a garnish.
