Moroccan Fish Stew

A very good recipe, simple, fast, healthy, dietary and of course tasty. The spices give it a very good aroma and taste, even for those who are not used to more special spices in food. Sofia ate very well, and is usually the most sensitive to new tastes, like all children.

Of course, you can omit some that you don't have, but it's a shame, because they are the difference between a simple fish stew and a Moroccan-style fish stew. Choose the fish as you like, I now used pieces of carp - it would go well with any kind.

I also really liked the preparation method, put all the ingredients once and then just make sure to adjust the flame of the stove.
