  • 4 pieces of white fish fillets (such as cod or halibut)
  • 4 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 can (400 ml) of coconut milk
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon of dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1/2 cup of vegetable or fish broth
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)
  • Lemon wedges (for serving)


  1. Rinse the white fish fillets under cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Cut each fillet into large chunks.
  2. Peel and dice the potatoes into bite-sized pieces.
  3. Finely chop the onion and mince the garlic. Dice the red bell pepper.
  4. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and garlic, and sauté until the onion becomes translucent (about 3-4 minutes).
  5. Add the diced red bell pepper and continue to sauté for another 2-3 minutes until the pepper softens.
  6. Transfer the sautéed vegetables to the crockpot. Add the diced potatoes, smoked paprika, dried oregano, ground cumin, sea salt, and black pepper. Stir to combine.
  7. Pour in the coconut milk and vegetable or fish broth. Stir well to ensure all the ingredients are evenly distributed.
  8. Cover the crockpot with the lid and set it to cook on low for 4 hours.
  9. After 3 hours, add the chunks of white fish to the crockpot. Gently stir to incorporate the fish into the stew. Cover and continue to cook for the remaining hour.
  10. Once the cooking time is complete, check that the potatoes are tender and the fish is cooked through. Adjust seasoning if necessary.
  11. Ladle the stew into bowls and garnish with freshly chopped parsley.
  12. Serve with lemon wedges on the side for an added burst of freshness.

This Mediterranean Coconut Fish Stew is a comforting and nutritious dish that's perfect for a cozy dinner. The combination of tender fish, creamy coconut milk, and aromatic spices creates a rich and satisfying meal that's sure to impress.
