Burrida: A Fish Stew
4 to 5 pounds firm-fleshed assorted thick fish fillets, such as snapper,
halibut cod and bluefish
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
2 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
2 celery ribs, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 flat anchovy fillets, finely chopped
1 8oz bottle clam juice
1 cup water
1/2 tsp pepper
2 Tbsp fresh chopped parsley
1 14 oz can Italian peeled tomatoes, drained and chopped

Cut fish into 2" by 3" pieces and pat dry. In a nonreactive flameproof
casserole large enough to hold all ingredients, heat oil over medium heat.
Add onion and cook 2-3 minutes, Add carrots, celery and garlic, and cook
until onions are just beginning to turn golden brown, 3-4 minutes. Stir in
anchovies, clam juice, water and tomatoes. Bring to a boil over high heat,
then reduce heat to medium and cook uncovered 10 minutes to combine
flavors. Add fish to pan, and cover. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer
15 minutes, or until fish is just opaque throughout. Season with pepper,
remembering anchovies are salty. Sprinkle parsley over top
and serve in warmed shallow soup bowls.
