Make

  1. Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add cooking oil and then garlic, onions, peppers, paprika, and chili powder to heated oil with a dash of salt. Saute until onions and peppers start to soften, ~3 minutes.
  2. Next add in tomatoes, coconut milk, stock, and salt. Cover and bring to a boil. Simmer uncovered for ~5 minutes.
  3. Fold in fish and simmer for another 5 minutes. Move pot off of heat. Finish with lemon juice and season to taste with salt, pepper, or more spices. You can spoon cauliflower rice into stew or spoon the stew over cauliflower rice - your choice! (Remember to save half the cauliflower rice for Wednesday's dinner)
