Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 T olive oil
    1 medium onion, finely chopped
    1 can (14.5 oz) petite diced tomatoes
    (or 6 roma tomatoes, skins and seeds removed, then chopped)
    pinch white pepper
    2 cups low sodium vegetable broth
    1/2 cup white wine (optional)
    1/3 cup ground almonds
    12 oz halibut fillets, cut into 1 inch cubes
    2 cups loosely chopped bok choy (or shredded fresh spinach)
    2 T fresh chopped basil (optional)
    1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley (optional)

Directions

Place a large saute pan over moderate heat; add oil. Add chopped onions and saute, stirring for 2-3 minutes. Don't let the onions brown. If using wine, add it to the pan, and, with a wooden spoon, scrape the bottom of the pan to loosen any onion that might have stuck. Add tomatoes and pepper; bring to a simmer. Cook for 3 minutes. Add stock and almonds; stir to combine. Add bok choy and simmer to wilt; 2 minutes. Add halibut and cook until fish becomes opaque, approx. 4-5 minutes.
If using herbs, add just before serving.

Recipe makes 6 servings with 2-3 ounces of halibut per serving. Addition of wine will add less than 10 calories per serving.

Serve this over brown rice (calories not included).

    I made this recipe using the suggested ingredients and it was great. The almonds thickened the sauce to my surprise and gave the dish a lovely creamy appearance. Delicious, although it is for six, try keeping them away from seconds! - 11/11/09

    A tasty fish stew -- substituted tilapia for the halibut and kale for the bok choy. Will definitely make again. - 12/8/09

    I had been looking for a good simple fish soup and this is it. I did make a couple of changes; I use chicken broth instead of vegetable broth since that's what I had on hand and left out the ground almonds since I didn't have any. Hubby liked it. - 10/13/09

    This recipe was easy to prepare and much more satisfying than I had expected. The almonds add a lot to the dish. I added fresh scallops and replaced the vegetable broth with dashi to make it more seafood-y. - 10/9/10

    Oustanding!! I have never have a fish soup/stew. Have heard of it, but it always just sounded wierd. I am now a believer!! I made it just like the recipe said (except dried basil instead of fresh). The combination made it taste very fresh, but was still a comfort food. Thanks so much for the recipe. - 10/16/10
