inspiration: http://southernfood.about.com/od/crockpotsoup/r/bl16c11.htm
  • whiting fish (wild caught, store bought)
  • olive oil
  • 3-4 garlic cloves
  • .5 purple onion, sliced
  • 1 zucchini squash, sliced/diced
  • 1 yellow squash, sliced/diced
  • 1 can basil/oregano diced tomatoes
  • shake in dried basil
  • shake in dried oregano
  • shake in salt
  • shake in red cayenne pepper
  • shake in pepper
  • pour in dry red wine (I used Redwood Creek Rich Red Blend (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah)
  • pour in chicken broth -- maybe 1/2 cup
Combine all ingredients in crockpot -- try to spread the fish out--some at the bottom, some in the middle, and top. Stir gently. Cover and cook on HIGH setting for 3 to 4.5 hrs, the squash needs to be cooked well. You should hear the olive oil popping/zzing in the crock pot.
