The Greeks supposedly invented fish stew and there are many versions of the dish. This version, which I adapted from a recipe in the Frugal Gourmet's Three Ancient Cuisines (a great book), is really phenomenal. We served this during a holiday party with greek salad and spanakopita. Friends of mine who have made regular chicken avgolemono and found it pedestrian, thought this was excellent. The addition of tomatoes and pepper really helps. Just close your eyes and you can imagine you are in Rhodos! A great alternative when you feel like Cioppino, but want to try something a little different.
