A really tasty fish and prawn stew with potatoes all cooked in one pot on top of the cooker. Everyone here had seconds.
NB. I used cod in my recipe and extra garlic. I also did not include the chick peas as I didn't realise we had run out until it was too late. we had freshly baked rolls to mop up all the juices.
handful flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped
2 garlic cloves , finely chopped
zest and juice 1 lemon
3 tbsp olive oil , plus extra to serve
1 medium onion , finely sliced
500g floury potatoes , cut into small chunks, no larger than 2cm cubes
1 tsp paprika
pinch cayenne pepper
400g can chopped tomatoes
1 fish stock cube
200g raw peeled king prawns
½ a 410g can chickpeas , rinsed and drained
500g skinless fish fillets, cut into very large chunks
In a small bowl, mix the parsley with ½ the garlic and lemon zest, then set aside. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a large sauté pan. Throw in the onion and potatoes, cover the pan, then sweat everything for about 5 mins until the onion has softened. Add the remaining oil, garlic and spices, then cook for 2 mins more.
Pour over the lemon juice and sizzle for a moment. Add the tomatoes, ½ a can of water and crumble in the stock. Season with a little salt, then cover the pan. Simmer everything for 15-20 mins until the potatoes are just cooked.
