The spicy aroma of Szechuan spices is essential for cooking grilled fish, highly enhancing the flavor of tilapia.

With the first bite, you’ll be able to taste the richness, tenderness, and freshness. This crockpot spicy fish stew is not only an excellent dish to be accompanied by wine and rice, or rice and noodles, but it also brings an ultimate sensation to your taste buds.
Origins of Crockpot Fish Recipes
With its cultural roots in Japanese dining tables and portable stoves, crockpot fish recipes are called “nabe”, which means “cooking pot” in Japanese, and cooked at the table. Diners gather around and pick the ingredients they chose from the pot to eat. In Japan, there are two types of nabe that include yudofu and mizutaki. Yudofu contains lightly flavored stock with mostly kombu. Mizutaki is eaten with a dipping sauce meant to accentuate the individual ingredients of the fish stew. Traditionally, the nabe pots are made of clay or thick cast iron and kept warm. They are placed in the middle of the dining table and meant to be the most sociable way to eat.
During the Edo period of Japanese history, one fireplace per home was the norm and the family would gather around during the cooler months to stay warm. This is considered to be the origin of nabe, with the original dishes prepared with seafood. Part of the reason for this was the denunciation of beef consumption under Buddhist rule. As trade flourished in areas that allowed other meats besides fish, beef was soon added to the list of acceptable ingredients in nabe. Currently, it’s still consumed in Japan to keep warm but is a hugely popular dish in Honolulu. Although cooler temperatures may not be as prevalent, the popularity of fish stew has not stopped its residents from throwing their own mixed ingredients together.
This down-to-earth Asian fusion favorite comes in many different varieties. Nabe can include:
Surprisingly, it is also part of the staple diet of sumo wrestlers! So, you can be sure that a hearty fish stew is sure to fill you up. Remember not to cook the stew too long to prevent overcooked fish from falling apart. Skim the foam off the top with a wooden spoon and don’t be afraid to add scallions!
