Perry bay stew


This is really a hearty fish stew and great during the winter months.


  • 1 each #2 can peas, green beans, lima beans, and corn (including juice)
  • 1 large can chopped or stewed tomatoes with juice
  • 1 large can tomato juice
  • 1 can corned beef broken up into pieces
  • ½ head cabbage (diced into 1½ x ½ inch pieces)
  • 2 large onions (diced as with cabbage)
  • 3 large carrots (sliced round 1/16th inch thick)
  • 3 – 4 medium sized potatoes, cubed (dice sized)
  • salt, pepper, and hot sauce as desired
  • approximately 30 (1 inch by 1 inch) pieces of fresh tuna. (Unfortunately most of us nowadays can't get good fresh tuna so I have often used freshwater bass or some other solid meat fish)


  1. In a large pot with tight fitting lid, add all above items except for the fish.
  2. A little extra water may have to be added to cover ingredients.
  3. Bring to a boil, being careful not to burn as the juice (tomato) is very rich.
  4. Once at a boil, reduce heat and cover, stirring often until the carrots are tender.
  5. Next, add the fish and continue to cook for another 20 minutes or so over medium heat.
