Caveman Cuisine: Fish in a Pot

Wild-caught frozen Portuguese sardines cooked whole in a spicy broth.


8 whole sardines (scales removed)
2 tbsp coconut milk
1 cup chicken or beef stock
1 tbsp Sriracha chili paste (Red Thai chili paste will also do)
1 small onion (diced)
5 cloves garlic (minced)
1 tbsp butter, lard, or coconut oil
2-3 tbsp coconut vinegar
Dash coconut aminos (used instead of soy sauce)
2-3 cups water


In a large pot, heat your butter or oil over medium heat.  Add onions, sauteing until translucent.  Add garlic and cook for about a minute.  Deglaze the pan with coconut vinegar, scraping the bottom with a wooden spoon.  Add stock, coconut milk, Sriracha, and coconut aminos stirring the mixture while turning the heat to high.  

After the cooking liquid has come to a boil, add fish to the pot along with enough water to mostly cover.  Bring the mixture back up to a boil before turning the heat back down to medium.  Cover the pot and cook for an additional 45 min.  Remove fish from cooking liquid and serve whole.

Yield: ~4 fishy servings
