Nigerian Fish Stew (Fried Fish Stew) | All Nigerian Recipes


Hello! In this video I’ll share how to make Nigerian
Fish Stew such that the fish does not scatter. Here are the ingredients you will need. I already have the video on how to fry your
best tomato stew ever. So go check it out! We start by cutting and cleaning the mackerel. This fish is also known as Titus in Nigeria. It is advisable to cut the fish while it’s
still a little bit frozen. I take out all the intestine. Some people say that they eat the eggs but
I take out everything. Rinse with cool water and here we are! Season with some salt, rub it all over the
fish and set aside. Dice one onion like this and slice the other
one like this. Before we fry the fish, we need to get some
fish stock to season the stew with. Place the diced onion, stock cubes and thyme
in a pot. And add a small quantity of water. When hot add the fish and heat for about 2
minutes, then turn them on the other side. After another 2 minutes, take them off and
set the stock aside. Then shallow-fry the fish till golden. Put the stock back on the stove and add the
tomato stew. Again, this is not raw tomato puree. This is a well fried tomato stew. The link to how I make it in the description
of the video below. Add the habanero pepper. And some water to bring it to the consistency
you like for your stews. Cover and leave to simmer till you see oil
some come to the surface. Stir it from time to time so it does not burn. You see that oil? Yes! This is the vegetable oil from frying the tomato stew, I did not add any new oil. Add the fried fish. I don’t add the fish head because it has a
tendency to scatter in the stew. As the cook, this fish head is my trophy. That is if my husband will let me eat it in
peace. Cover and leave to simmer and it’s done! There you have it! The Nigerian Fish Stew for boiled rice, boiled
yam, potatoes name it! If you enjoyed this video please click the
