fish stew

one pot meals save time and energy in the kitchen. on nights when i don't have enough of either, i usually make dinner with just one pan. this stew is rich in flavor, and hearty in satisfaction. i serve it with bread and a dry white wine.

• 1/2 green cabbage, sliced (or chopped celery)
• 2 cloves of minced garlic
