This is a Weight Watchers recipe and sounded good to me. Just adjust or eliminate the hot chile if it bothers you.

Red snapper lends excellent flavor to this hearty stew. You could use cod to save a few dollars if you don’t mind a softer texture.

1 serving cooking spray (5 one-second sprays per serving)
1 small onion(s), chopped
1/4 cup sweet red pepper(s), chopped
1 average jalapeno pepper(s), red, or other hot chile, cored, seeded and minced (do not touch seeds with bare hands)
1 pound snapper fillet(s), or cod fillet, skinned, cut into bite-size pieces
2 medium tomato(es), cored and chopped
1/4 tsp dried thyme, crushed
1/2 tsp table salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 cup fat-free chicken broth
1/2 cup cooked couscous, pearl-variety
1 Tbsp chives, fresh, minced
1 tsp fresh lemon juice

Coat a medium nonstick pot with cooking spray. Add onion, red pepper and chile; sauté, stirring frequently, for 3 minutes. Add fish and cook 1 minute.

Add tomatoes, thyme, salt, pepper and broth. Simmer until fish is cooked through, about 5 minutes.

Stir in couscous, chives and lemon juice; heat through. Yields about 1 1/4 cup per serving.

Freezing and thawing instructions: Prepare stew recipe and place cooled product in a freezer-safe container, cover tightly and freeze. When ready to eat, thaw in the refrigerator and then reheat in covered saucepan over medium heat, about 5 minutes, or in microwave on medium power until hot. Or, remove frozen stew from container and place in a saucepan. Cover and heat over medium heat, breaking up stew with a spoon as it softens, about 15 minutes.
