Florida Fish Stew

Traveling to the Florida Keys never gets old, especially when meeting up with friends and finding the time to go out to fish for a few hours. Often we prepare a meal from our catch at the end of the day. I learned to prepare a tasty fish stew on one of my trips.



  1. In a large soup pot, heat olive oil and garlic on medium heat. Add onions, fennel, leeks and carrots. Continue to sauté, adding saffron and cracked black pepper.
  2. Deglaze with and Pernod. Add chicken stock; add seafood and poach until done.
  3. Add squash and zucchini; and chopped fennel tops. Season stew as needed and serve in open soup bowl.

Serves: 4
