Stewed Red Snapper Fillets
Thanksgiving came and went and left me feeling like the stuffed chicken we had on our table. We decided not to cook a host of dishes this year, but somehow, it still ended up being a lot of food. And I still ended up eating more than I wanted to. I’ve been feeling for something a little lighter for dinner and had the taste for stewed red snapper fillets in my mouth. My dad makes this stew really well so we cooked it together and used some red snapper we bought at the market. This stuff is so good y’all. It’s so spicy and the gravy really packs on the flavor. The fresh tomatoes make the gravy nice and light while the fried fish adds texture. I usually have this with paratha roti, but this time I opted for jasmine rice.
This is a simple dish I would cook for dinner during the week using whatever fish I have in my freezer. I prefer to fry the fish before adding to the sauce. It thickens the sauce nicely and also helps to keep the fish together so it doesn’t break apart when placed in the hot gravy.
