Smoked Fish Stew

This savory stew is made with smoked salmon, but it’s easy to swap in other types of fish, like haddock, cod or halibut. You can also use canned smoked fish for an even faster preparation, although it will have less flavour than the fresh stuff.

You can cook this fish in a skillet, but it’s also a great idea to roast it in the oven for extra flavor. Just remember to transfer it to a warm plate before serving so that it doesn’t dry out and become overcooked.
