This homey, old-fashioned fish stew has a light, lemony flavour and, because fish cooks quickly, takes much less time to make than a meat stew.

  • Portion size 4 servings



Scrub potatoes and peel carrot; cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) chunks. In large saucepan, combine potatoes, carrot, leeks, celery, 2 cups (500 mL) water, stock, wine, salt and pepper; bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer just until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.

Add cod; simmer, covered, for 5 minutes. Add shrimp; simmer, covered, until shrimp are pink and fish flakes easily when tested, 3 to 5 minutes. With slotted spoon, transfer fish, shrimp and vegetables to large bowl, being careful not to break up fish.

In small bowl, mix flour with butter; whisk in 1/2 cup (125 mL) hot liquid until blended. Whisk back into pan; cook, whisking, over medium-high heat until thick enough to coat back of spoon, 5 minutes.

Stir in dill and lemon juice. Return fish mixture to pan; heat through, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with green onion.
