Easy Asian-style Seafood Stew (Gluten-Free)

Celiac.com 04/16/2015 - In my travels through southeast Asia, I have eaten many a fish or seafood stew. This recipe tries to evoke those flavors.

Simply sauté some fish or seafood in a pan, add some broth, and stir in a purée of great ingredients like garlic, basil, mint, cilantro and lemongrass, with fish sauce, sugar and a few other things, and you get a yummy stew with a nice spicy zing.

The basil, mint and cilantro give the sauce a verdant green hue.

  • 1 cup basil leaves
  • 1½ cups cilantro
  • ⅓ chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2-2½-inch chunk of fresh ginger, peeled, sliced
  • 4-inch long piece of lemongrass, the tender, center part
  • 1 tablespoon gluten-free fish sauce (I use Squid brand)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Stew Ingredients:

  • ¾ pound firm white fish, cut into chunks
  • ½ pound fresh squid, cut into rings
  • ½ pound shrimp, cleaned and deveined

Directions:
First, make the green sauce by putting the garlic, basil, mint, cilantro, lemongrass, ginger, chilies, fish sauce, sugar and salt into a blender or food processor and mixing into a paste.

Add cold water as needed, but you want the mixture to be pretty thick and pasty.

Next, heat oil in a deep sauté pan.

Season fish chunks with salt and pepper and add to the hot oil.

Cook fish for about a minute on first side. Increase heat and turn fish to cook other side for about 1 minute more.

Add broth and half of the paste mixture.

Cover and cook for a couple minutes longer, until fish is fully cooked.

Add remaining sauce and stir gently until dissolved.

Add more broth, salt, or water to taste.

Serve over white rice with a side of steamed vegetables for a lean, healthy, delicious meal.

Are you substituting something for the PPI? I'm not sure what meds will mix well with it, but you could ask the pharmacy or Dr. for advice on what might work. I'm thinking you stopped something that may be helping in some ways, and are now allowing your symptoms to return. If so, it makes ...
