Vegetable Fish Stew

Spicy hot fish stew with okra, green bean, daikon, carrot and tomato is delicious country food from Khmer in Cambodia. Back home, our people make this fish stew with mostly boneless Asian catfish, basa fish or snakehead fish. Here, seafood is expensive. But catfish nuggets are the cheapest and it is excellent for stew, soup, caramelized and fish cake. Many Asians prefers the texture and taste of catfish belly(catfish nuggets) that available at most grocery stores with me.
