"This simple fish and potato stew is great for you less-than-confident cooks, since your timing doesn't need to be that precise."

Chef John, your recipes never disappoint and this one is no different. I used a combination of tilapia and snapper, and half & half instead of the cream because that's what I had on hand, and it was fantastic! I served it with a simple green salad and some bread, and it was a great meal that looked way more expensive and labor intensive than it was. Thanks for sharing!
I made this tonight using red snapper - fantastic! Will definitely make it again. Thank you so much!
This is A MAZ ING....OMG!!!!
This was great we cooked it just like the recipe said and it was great. even our kids loved it. the only thing i would do different would be to add less spice just for the kids. the adults loved it.
I love the elegant simplicity of this dish--it tastes like I spent all day preparing it, but it was quite simple and quick to put together. I think I would prefer a more mild fish than rockfish next time, though that may be personal preference. There is so much great flavor in the broth and veggies that rockfish overpowers the dish.
Easy to make and super delicious. My husband is allergic to fish, so at the end I added 2 cans of clams with juice. It was a big hit. I also cooked this in my pressure cooker, after step 2 I cooked at high pressure for 5 min and it came out perfect. Added half and half (instead of the whipping cream, since that's what I had) and clams, and everyone loved it. Great recipe!
