It was decided sometime ago that according to my family "potatoes ARE indeed a food group. While trying to decide how I would prepare some nice haddock I found on sale one day; I thought what better thing to do with it than pair it with our favorite "Food Group". It has become Darby's favorite Sea Food Stew. His name for it..."That Fish Stew with the Little Balls in it" —GiGi26

This looks wonderful! Where are the little balls? Did I miss something?

The coriander seeds are the little balls he refers to. I am making a pot later today and hope to add a picture of the stew.
