Natural Awakenings to Healthy Happy Meals

by | Feb 12, 2007 | Archives

Natural Awakenings are holistic and look at good nutrition but good flavor as well.

While many investors sit and worry about politics, we sit under warm clear skies and enjoy natural awakenings to healthy food. Yesterday/s message looked at our trip to the Ibarra seafood market. Here is one of the resultant meals that made our guests very happy….Ecuadorian Quinoa Bouillabaisse.

Natural Awakenings Recipe

The ingredients are:

Fish stock made from boiling heads and bones of fish. After bringing to a boil, add 1 tbs. of vinegar to help break down the calcium of the bones into useful absorption by the diner.

3 redfish
3 lbs sea bass, (Corvina)
Shells and heads of 24 large tiger prawns
Steam redfish and sea bass briefly. Remove flesh.
Continue to boil down heads and bones.

Mix with:

3 redfish
3 lbs sea bass, (Corvina)
24 raw large tiger prawns
5 tbsp olive oil
2 organic green onions, finely chopped
6 garlic cloves, in chunks
1 fennel
1 tsp of fennel seeds
Bunch freshly chopped flat leaf parsley
Spring of thyme
2 bay leaves
2 strips orange peel
1 tsp achiote
2 tsp Salinas salt
2 tbsp anise


1. Create the fish stock. Remove the redfish and corvina.
2. Heat the olive oil in a large pan and add the onion, garlic and fennel. Cook gently for 10 minutes or until the vegetables are soft.
3. Stir in the fennel seeds, parsley, thyme and bay leaves. Add the orange zest, fish stock and achiote. Bring to the boil and simmer gently, uncovered, for 30-40 minutes skimming the surface occasionally to remove any froth.
4. Add in Quinoa.
5. When the fish broth has reduced to a thickness, remove from the heat and strain into a clean pan. Add the anise, taste and season accordingly. Return to a simmer and add the corvina and red fish. Bring back up to a simmer and add the prawns. Cook for a further 2 minutes.

Serve immediately into a bowl lined with slices of dry bread covered with garlic and mustard.

This meal is filled with protein, calcium mineral and vitamins.
