"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 would rename this "addictive fish stew" as it was decadent and flavorful and very easy. I live in Dubai and could not find fennel bulb, so used about a half a tablespoon of fennel seed instead.
Very good. I added more bullion for the soup like consistency. Thank you for the fabulous dish.
Loved this!.......I followed the recipe except I used a can of 2% evaporated milk instead of the cream......its fantastic......learned that when in Nova Scotia and had a fish stew!...also added 3 times the tarragon...red pepper flakes instead of cayenne!
I was in soup mode one night and was trying three similar types of soups that used similar ingredients. This one was the clear winner and I have tossed the recipe in my "Tried and True" file of recipes!
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.
