This easy whitefish recipe is a meal-in-one-pot, a German fish stew, aka Fischeintopf, that's sure to please.

In German, an "Eintopf " means "one pot" and that's what this recipe is. There are so many Eintopf recipes in Germany. And, particularly in northern Germany, fish is such a commonly used ingredient.

This fish stew uses a firm fleshed fish - whiting or cod are ideal, but any other will do as well. 

When you choose your fish fillets, check carefully that they have no bones. If they do, use tweezers to remove them.

You can vary the amount of vegetables according to your likes and what's available or what's in your fridge.

In this dish, the fish is almost 'steamed' on top of a bed of veggies. Wunderbar!
