Recipe Ingredients:

1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon caraway seed
1 teaspoon dill seed
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
1 (14.5-ounce) can beef broth
1 (12-ounce) bottle German or Belgian beer
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
4 (4-ounce) Alaska Seafood portions, fresh, thawed or frozen

For Stew:
2 teaspoons dried minced onion or 1 green onion, sliced
4 cups (about 12 ounces) shredded cabbage
1 cup shredded carrots (about 1 large)
1 (14.5-ounce) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
Salt and ground black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons fresh chopped dill or parsley

Cooking Directions:

  1. In a large (10 to 12-inch) nonstick pan or stockpot, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in all seeds; cook and stir 1 minute. Add broth and beer; bring to a simmer. Sprinkle in pepper.
  2. Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska Seafood portions under cold water. Turn off heat and gently add seafood to liquid, skin side down. Return heat to a simmer.
  3. Once simmering, cover pan and cook 4 to 5 minutes for frozen seafood or 2 minutes for fresh/thawed fish.
    Turn off heat and let seafood rest 5 minutes or until seafood is opaque throughout. Remove seafood, cover and keep warm.
  4. Remove and reserve (for later use) all but 1 cup of poaching liquid. To remaining liquid in pan, add minced onion, cabbage and carrots. Cook and stir over medium-high heat, for 3 to 4 minutes, until cabbage is wilted. Stir in beans. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss in dill or parsley.
  5. To Serve: Portion 1 cup cabbage stew into shallow bowl and top with a seafood portion.

Makes 4 servings.
