Before I start talking about food, I have a huge announcement to make. On Friday I found out I passed the California bar exam. 😀 😀 😀
My life has been pretty excellent this last year. It’s been stressful, no doubt, but I couldn’t ask for anything better.
Anyway, this year I also started the Pantry Party. Pantry Party is a monthly round-up, where dishes are made from the ingredients in our pantries. Every month I give a theme. This month’s theme has been perfect for this crazy month (or really, this crazy year) I’ve been having. The theme? A recipe that can be made in 30 minutes or less!
The month is almost over – I hope more people join.
This was an easy dish. It was flavorful. And for a cold evening, it was great! PS – it was the first dish I made as a lawyer. This dish took me about 20 minutes to prepare.
Spicy Fish Stew
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 lb swai, cut into pieces
1 onion, sliced
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp a spice mix from Bubba’s Texas Burger Shack (I got this from a past Foodie Pen Pals)
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 can garbanzo beans
1. In a deep pot, heat the olive oil. Add the spice mix and the oregano and cook for 30 seconds. Add the onions, garbanzo beans, and garlic. Cover and cook over low-medium heat for 10 minutes.
2. Add 1/2 cup of water. Arrange the swai between the vegetables. Cover and cook for 7 minutes.
