Prep Time: 10 Min.
Cook Time: 20 Min.
What you need:
* 1 Tbsp. butter
* 1 tsp. caraway seed
* 1 tsp. dill seed
* 1/2 tsp. celery seed
* 1/2 tsp. mustard seeds
* 1 (14.5 oz.) can beef broth
* 12 oz. German or Belgian beer
* 1/4 tsp. white pepper
* 4 Alaska Seafood portions (4-oz. ea.), fresh, thawed or frozen
* 2 tsp. dried minced onion or 1 green onion, sliced
* 4 c. (about 12-oz.) shredded cabbage
* 1 c. shredded carrots (about 1 large)
* 1 can (14.5 oz.) cannelini beans, drained and rinsed
* salt and pepper, to taste
* 2 Tbsp. fresh chopped dill or parsley
What to do:
1. In a large (10 to 12-in.) nonstick pan or stockpot, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in all seeds; cook and stir 1 min. Add broth and beer; bring to a simmer. Sprinkle in pepper. 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.
2. Once simmering, cover pan and cook 4 to 5 min. for frozen seafood or 2 min. for fresh/thawed fish. Turn off heat and let seafood rest 5 min. or until seafood is opaque throughout. Remove seafood, cover and keep warm.
3. 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 min., until cabbage is wilted. Stir in beans. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss in dill or parsley.
4. To serve, portion 1 cup cabbage stew into shallow bowl and top with a seafood portion.
