Stew might not be the first thing to come to mind when you think about seafood, but the truth is there are plenty of great seafood stews out there. Our slow cooker recipe for halibut stew is one of our favorites. It is a healthy stew recipe that is filled with fish, as well as vegetables and other nutritious ingredients.
Stew is a perfect dish for winter because it is so warm and satisfying. The use of fish lightens this recipe up a bit, but it is still one of the heartiest meals we offer on our site. The dish is great served right from your slow cooker or heated up for lunch or dinner a few day’s later. Chances are this recipe will yield enough for leftovers, so enjoy!
Slow cooker recipes are easy and convenient, which is why busy families love them. What they sometimes forget is slow cooker foods are also great for entertaining. The next time you plan to entertain during the bitter cold of winter, serve this delicious stew. Your guests will love the hearty, healthy taste of the dish.
