Fresh Fish stew with vegetables (Caribbean Stewed fish altered for my Nigerian palate)

This fish stew is so delicious one cannot describe it. If you love like Caribbean stewed fish, then,you'll love this in a finger licking way. I left out a few ingredients that I think my local Nigerian palate will not enjoy. Boiled my fish the Nigerian way before adding unlike the Carribean method of just stir frying fish  along with vegetables. These pieces are large and may not cook through the way we like it here. My boiling before adding is just to ensure that my fish cook well well and I have fish stock to make sauce because definitely, my Nigerian palate will enjoy this with a hot plate of boiled rice. The stew is meant to be served as a meal sha but since I'm not really watching my weight at the moment, that alone without boiled rice won't fill me up. So I got a little bit creative and came up with this delicious pot of Nigerian fresh fish stew cooked with colourful assorted vegetables, with my Naija local flavour in there. This pot of fish stew serves 7.
