The traditional meat-free week of Easter forces us to be more creative when it's time to cook. However, there are days when we're lacking in the creative department and have no idea what to prepare. To help you with your Easter week dishes, we're sharing recipes for a traditional Stewed Cod or an exotic Fish Stew in Salsa Verde Coconut Broth with LAS PALMAS sauce.
LAS PALMAS sauces are made with tomatoes, tomatillos and real chiles, as well as other ingredients and spices that have been part of Mexican cuisine for centuries. In addition, these recipes are based on those that have been passed down from generation to generation; thus, the results are dishes with authentic Mexican flavor!
