Creamy Icelandic Fish Stew Recipe Is Easy & Absolutely Delicious

Seafood is one of my all-time favorite things to eat. This fabulous fish stew recipe is so simple to make, and packed with amazing flavors. 

I served this savory soup recipe for dinner with garlic bread and a good glass of wine. So easy and delicious!

Servings: 4


  • 1 1/2 pounds cod, halibut or other whitefish 
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 3 ribs celery, diced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
