Fish Stew
(serves 4-6)

2 cans Mackerel
2 medium Onions (chopped)
1 to 2 cups Celery (chopped)
32 oz. Stock (chicken or veg—or use 1/2 stock 1/2 water
1 can Tomato Paste (I use only 2/3 can)
1-2 Tbsp Lemon juice
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Parsely (chopped)
1 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
Salt/Pepper (to taste)
Red Pepper (cajun seasoning–optional–to taste)
Dried Jalapenos (optional –to taste)

Drain mackerel, break fish apart, and set aside in a bowl(I remove some of the less attractive bits of skin and bone, but I’m not militant about it). Heat olive oil in a pot and saute onions and celery for 2-3 minutes. Add the tomato paste and stock. A full can of tomato paste can be used, but I usually just use 2/3 of the can (it all depends on how tomato-ee you like it). Use two cans of stock (32 0z) or just use 1 can stock and 1 can water. Bring pot to a boil and cook for 2 minutes, stirring as needed. Add fish and return pot to boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. While simmering, add lemon juice and seasonings. Stir occasionally and add water if needed.
Serve over rice or with crackers or bread.

  2. Chef Buck says:

    that's a great tip–and very true–I'm always shaking my spices over a steaming dish, and my spices do get a little clumpy; I go through most of them pretty quickly, but some I don't.

  3. Just tried two cases of Crown Prince Jack, just delivered 2 min ago. Thanks for vid.. Am on Dr Adamo Blood type diet. This is a beneficial food for B blood types.

  4. Was gonna cook carrot, potato, red bell P, in 1 inch squares with some Mackerel chunks in Butter. Like St Dalfore does big bistro canned out of this world entree.

  7. That was funny. I'll try the recipe maybe the next time hard rain come past Jamaica and I can't get to the store.. 

  8. Chef Buck says:

    I hope you like it–with winter coming, I'll be making a lot of dishes like this soon. Nutrition-wise and taste-wise, it's a pretty good bang for your buck.

    Cool weather means more stews and soups on the stove.  This Mackerel Stew is one of my favorites, 'cause it tastes great and it's cheap…I'm a naturally cheap guy.

    If you don't mind me asking– how much money does buying the Canned Mackerel cost– in comparison to the Wild Mackerel? I'm a naturally cheap guy too lols

  11. Looks yummy and great way to add fish to your diet 🙂 have you tried other canned fish
    like salmon?

  12. rokmontez says:

    I was a tad skeptical at first – I tried tinned mackerel in a fish casserole once and it did not turn out well: mackerel is too oily a fish for that.  This recipe, however, is a great one for tinned mackerel – the result is very good.  And it's an easy recipe that you can adjust based one whatever seasonings you have on hand.  Two thumbs up!

  13. I love it !
    Reminds me of how my dad use to make it for me when I was younger
