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.

In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free. I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!! Awesome!!!

If you yourself have Celiac's disease, you probably shouldn't give gluten-free sandwiches to the homeless, because they're disgusting. Your male neighbor doesn't need tampons. That sort of reasoning should be applied. But you must always remember that the Gospel requires you to treat other people...

Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don?t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face. I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks

I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be e...

Hi and Welcome to the Forum. I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya. People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean tha...
