Stewed Creole Fish can be found throughout the Caribbean Islands in a number of variations. This Saint Lucian Stewed Creole Fish is, however, unique to the little country, with big, robust, spicy flavor.
Andorran Escudella is a national favorite in this small country. Escudella originated among the
Catalan people, and some historians claim it to be the first referenced soup in Europe. Andorrans adopted the basic stew recipe and modified it more to their favorite tastes and ingredients. For as long as modern day natives can remember, Andorran escudella has been a revered “special occasion” dish, traditionally served on Christmas.
Very rich, filling and fatty, it features several different meats and animal parts. Some variations include meatballs. Always, however, it is spiced with parsley and garlic – lots of garlic. Andorran escudella also contains plenty of vegetables, which may vary depending on the season. Cabbage, carrots, celery, parsnips and potatoes are common ingredients. It can be served as a soup, or boiled down to more of a stew consistency. Sometimes Andorran escudella is served ladled over a bed of rice in a deep bowl. This recipe calls for rice – and pasta – as inclusive ingredients.
