I don’t post a whole lot of seafood recipes, but I’ve recently started making this stew and it’s pretty dang delicious. Coconut milk + Shrimp = An exotic and exciting soup! You can use all kinds of shellfish in here; mussels, clams, other kinds of fish…

  1. […] There’s really nothing quite so satisfying as a stew. Heck, even the name is satisfying to say: “stew.” Then you add “Caribbean Fish” on to that and get something really good going. […]
