Sudado de Pescado is a traditional Colombian fish stew. This dish is absolutely delicious and very simple to make, serve this fish stew with white rice on the side to soak the wonderful sauce.
Sudado de Pescado (Colombian-Style Fish Stew)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 cup chopped tomato
- ¼ cup chopped onion
- 1 scallion chopped

- 2 cups water
- salt and pepper
- ½ teaspoon ground cumin
- ½ teaspoon Sazon Goya with azafran or achiote

- Add water, yuca and cumin powder. Reduce the heat to medium low, cover, and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

- Serve with white rice and fried sweet plantains on the side.
When I was growing up in Colombia, my mom made sudados once a week. Sudados are a popular dish in Colombia and we have many variations of this dish. For my mom, sudado is the perfect one pot, quick and simple meal. She would make a big pot so we would have left overs for the next day and served it over white rice and fried pantains with avocado on the side.
The aromas of this dish remind me of home whenever I cook it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. This is traditional Colombian home cooking, the style of food that my mom knows how to make very well. Some other variations of sudados are: chicken, beef, pork, meatballs and fish.
Too bad I didn't see this post earlier today, I made some fish for lunch (I'm on vacation from school), it was good, but this would have been so much better!
OMG this Sudado looks awesome

I just bought some of the Sazon with azafran and I am glad to see how you used it in one of your recipes. It looks colorful and gorgeous.

I love real down-to-earth homestyle meals like this. Looks fantastic...so full of flavor. Especially over some fried plantains (swoon).
