This stew is seriously delicious and just so happens to be really good for you too!


1 lb any fish- I used monkfish, but just about any type of fish could work.

2 cups cooked, mashed squash (or a 15 oz can of pumpkin)

2 c water plus extra for cooking onions. Clam Juice or seafood stock would be even better here if you have it !

1/2 onion, sliced

6-8 cloves garlic, minced

1 T high quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 bay leaf

2 tsp dried cilantro

6-8 saffron threads, crumbled with fingers (Amazon has it too!)

1 tsp dried tarragon

1/2 tsp dried thyme

3/4 tsp salt

Juice of 1 lemon

1 1/2 T balsamic vinegar

Minced parsley or arugula for garnish (opt.)


1) Saute garlic and onions in oil on medium heat until they start to brown.

2) Add 3/4 c water and bay leaf.

3) Cover and let cook until the onion is soft.

4) Add squash or pumpkin and 2 c water (or clam juice or seafood stock!)

5) Add cilantro, saffron, tarragon, thyme and salt.

6) Bring to a simmer, then add fish, lemon juice and balsamic.

7) Cook covered on medium heat until fish is cooked through.

8) Break the fish up into bite-sized pieces with spatula.

9) Garnish with minced parsley or arugula and serve over AIP Couscous or AIP Noodles.

10) Enjoy!!!💕
