Piment d’Espelette Fish Stew

  • Details
  • Related Items

This hearty stew hits it on all notes, the high acid of the tomatoes and wine play against the sweetness of the deeply caramelized onion and fennel, the brine-y olives render the seafood right at home, and the Piment d’ Espelette… oh, the Espelette! The perfect balance of heat and complexity that clarifies this bounty of flavor, and unites it all in delicious harmony. If my fish-monger has them, I’ll often throw in a few oily little fish,too, like fresh anchovies or sardines… Just sear them whole, skins and all, in a bit of olive oil and add to the serving dishes.
