Spicy Fish Stew with Olives

    5 hours 25 minutes

    There is nothing quite so satisfying as a good peppery fish stew. The addition of orange juice and olives is a Mediterranean touch.

    5 Stars is not enough! Truly not enough! Making soup is my specialty and this soup is amazing! I had a special request for fish soup from a very picky eater, so when I found this recipe, I thought it sounded good. I was amazed! And the crock pot did most of the work! I used fresh tomatoes instead of canned (the picky eater won't eat canned) and I used fresh mushrooms. The picky eater gave this thumbs up, and after three bowls said that he wished he could eat more! Thank you for sharing this recipe! I will add this to my soup repetoire, as it is fabulous and wonderful for Lent! I was also skeptical about the orange juice and I added it, and am so happy that I did! This is a 10 Star recipe!  -  18 Apr 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe was great, I omitted the olives and substituted Tilapia instead of cod. I slow cooked it all day and actually added the shrimp and fish at the same time.  -  25 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Delicious and easy. Just throw it all in the Crock Pot. I substituted a bag of frozen seafood medley (shrimp, scallop, calamari) for the shrimp.  -  15 Jan 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
