Tender Fish and Tomato Curry

Prep + Cook: 30 Minutes, Makes 4 servings

1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

1 yellow onion, halved top to bottom and thinly sliced

2 stalks celery, thinly sliced

1 tsp. curry powder

15 oz. fire-roasted diced tomatoes, with their liquid

1 lb. catfish or other thick white fish fillet, cut into 1-inch chunks

1/4 tsp. salt, or to taste

1/4 tsp. black pepper, or to taste

In a Dutch oven or deep skillet, heat the oil over medium to medium-high heat.  Add the onions and celery and sauté them, stirring often, until they are tender, about 7 minutes. Stir in the curry powder for about 30 seconds, and then add the tomatoes. When it starts to bubble gently, stir in the fish and keep it at a simmer for about 7 minutes until the fish is cooked through.  Season it with salt and pepper and serve it over the rice.

Slow Cooker and/or Instant Pot Directions: Add all ingredients to the slow cooker and cook on low for 4 – 5 hours or on high for 2 – 2 1/2 hours.
(Slow cooker cooking times may vary—Get to know your slow cooker and, if necessary, adjust cooking times accordingly.)

Do Ahead or Delegate: Halve and slice the onion, slice the celery, dice the tomato, cut the fish and refrigerate.

Scramble Flavor Booster: Double the curry powder or serve the stew with hot pepper sauce, such as Tabasco.  Serve the stew with fresh lime wedges.

Tip: If some of your favorite fruits and vegetables aren’t in season now, peruse the frozen fruit and vegetable aisle for alternatives.  Frozen produce is picked and flash-frozen at the peak of its freshness and maintains its nutritional benefits and flavor.
