Smoked Fish Stew, from Ghana

Smoked fish is used in many combination dishes in West Africa, but rarely by itself in a stew. This is a rare discovery from Accra, Ghana.


1/2 lb. Onions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup vegetable oil, cut in 1 inch pieces
1 lb. fresh tomatoes, cut in 1 inch pieces
4 tbsp. tomato paste
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper (optional)
1 quart water
2 lbs. smoked fish
Salt and pepper

Sauté 1/2 lb. onions, thinly sliced in 1/4 cup vegetable oil until soft, but not brown. Add 1 lb. fresh tomatoes, cut in 1 inch pieces.

Stir into mixture 4 tbsp. tomato paste, crushed red pepper (optional), and 1 quart water. Simmer with cover on for 15 minutes.

Debone 2 lbs. of smoked fish (if smoked herring is used, soak it for one hour to remove excess salt).

Add the deboned, flaked fish to the mixture and simmer for ten minutes longer.

Correct the seasoning with salt, if needed, and pepper.

Add water if necessary to bring stew to consistency.

Serve with rice. Yield: 2 quarts (8 portions).
