A Dozen Recipes Every North Carolinian Should Know-- Part 4: Fish Muddle

7.  FISH MUDDLE

Southerners, especially in N.C., have their fish muddle which is essentially fish stew made from the catch-of-the-day, seafood and shellfish.  The thick stew includes basic vegetables and simple seasonings

The more stuff in the pot, the better.

A defining characteristic of muddle is that it is garnished with eggs, which can be poached in the savory broth, scrambled and swirled into the pot like egg drop soup.  To make it even better, ladle the muddle onto hot grits or rice.

OK, I have to admit that I had never heard of the term "muddle" before.  Now I know.
