Provencal Fish Stew

As my vacation down-under is moving along I continue to use my hostess and Mr Three-Year-Old as guinea pigs for recipes that I find in various places. This one appeared when I Googled for white fish recipes. It was real easy to cook and turned out great not tasting too fishy, which makes it plausible to use on my friend who claim she doesn’t like any fish at all.
