Dahomey fish stew is a Beninese dish consisting of fillets taken from low-fat firm fish that are rolled in flour and fried in oil until golden brown. They are then combined with cooked onions and tomatoes and left to simmer until the dish is served, preferably with rice. The dish is named after Dahomey, which is what Benin Republic was known as in the early 1970s; when the first recipe for this stew was published.
