    Chef Amy Riolo discusses how to make greek style stewed fish.

    Amy Riolo: Hi! I am Amy Riolo. Today, I am working in the kitchen at Sur la Table in Arlington, Virginia. We are going to be making Psari Plaki, which is a Greek style roasted fish with tomatoes and herbs. The first thing that we are going to do to make our Greek style roasted fish is to assemble all our ingredients together in a baking pan. Once we assemble them together, we will put them in the oven and roast them and then we will plate them and show you how to serve your Greek Style Stewed Fish.

    Before we begin, lets talk a little bit about the tools that we are going to need to make the dish. You will need a 9x13 inch baking pan, you will also need a sharp knife, and a bowl. The ingredients which we will need are one quarter cup extra virgin olive oil, plus one teaspoon divided. One bunch of fresh parsley chopped, 1 pounds of medium sized Yukon Gold potatoes, thats going to be about four potatoes. Then you will need two ten-ounce packages of frozen spinach, which have been thawed and drained. We will need two Cubanelle peppers sliced into rings. Two medium tomatoes; one of those will diced and the other one will halved and sliced. Five garlic cloves which have been roughly chopped, four tablespoons fresh oregano finely chopped or one tablespoon dried. About six cod, red snapper, sea bass, or halibut fillets. Two tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour, one teaspoon sweet paprika, sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.

    Because we are going to be working with hot temperatures and sharp knives, safety is always important. So I would remind people to just make sure that you are supervising children when they are in the kitchen with you.

    Before we get started, let me tell you a little about myself. I am a cookbook author, cooking instructor, food history lecturer, and restaurant consultant based in the Washington D.

    C. area. Now, lets get started making our Greek Style Stewed Fish.
