Slow-Cooked Fish Stew

Total Time

Prep: 25 min. Cook: 6-1/2 hours


8 servings (3 quarts)

I love fish and chowder, so this stew is a favorite of mine. It's made without cream or whole milk for a healthier touch. To add richness and extra flavor, top servings with a little grated cheddar.—Jane McMillan, Dania Beach, Florida
