  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and cook the onion and celery until soft but not coloured, about 10 mins. Throw in the garlic and cook for 1 min more. Pour in the wine and simmer on a high heat until most has disappeared.

  2. Pour in the stock and cornflour mix and simmer for 5-10 mins, stirring often until thickened. Season, then add the seafood and most of the dill. Simmer for a few mins until piping hot, then stir in the crème fraîche.

  3. Meanwhile, cook the garlic bread following pack instructions. Divide the stew into warm bowls and scatter with the remaining dill. Serve with garlic bread for dipping into the stew.

Really tasty, the garlic bread goes incredibly well. I tend to double the amount of seafood though, it does need the extra substance. As many have said, don't bother without the dill, it's really a must for this dih to work!

This is a great recipe - fast yet tasty. I used only 150 ml white wine and 200ml stock and added 200 ml plain yoghurt instead of creme fraiche. I also sprinkled a little cajun spice on the onions while they were frying. Everyone was impressed!

This was very tasty and surprisingly easy to make. The white wine definitely brings it a nice flavour, but the dish becomes much nicer if you add a little salmon in it. I will definitely do this again soon

Ive made this stew a few times now and it turns out beautiful every time. This time I'm going to do it a little differently. We've have a huge amount of Marrow, Courgette, Pumpkin and Squash so I'm going to cut these into little chunks and cook them along side the onion and celery, continue with the rest of the recipe as it states but instead of adding seafood this time I 'll lay a panfried Seabass fillet on the top when serving.

We loved this dish. Easy and quick to do, had it with garlic bread as well, yummy to dip in. The dill makes all the difference. Will definately make again

Lovely! felt it was missing veg so added a few cooked and chopped new potatoes and some baby corn and mange tout.

We loved this. I did change a bit which I don't usually do - leeks for celery, mixed herbs for dill and cider instead of wine but it was still delish. The quantities were fine for us (2 adults/2 children) but agree you may need more for 4 adults. I served it with garlic bread (sooo yummy dipped in!), green beans and carrots. It's now stored in my favs as I've always got mixed seafood in the freezer.

Delicious! Made this instead of our usual roast as the sun was shining! Was absolutely lovely, used a mix of seafood (meant for a fish pie) salmon, cod, smoked haddock and lots of prawns, also used a knorr herb infusion pot as well as the stock, also used fresh dill and served with garlic bread. Fab!

Just made this for dinner tonight, my seafood pack didn't contain scallops, so i bought some fresh from the fish counter, quartered and poached them in the sauce for a couple of minutes before adding the rest of the seafood to heat through. I couldn't locate any fresh dill at my local supermarket, so just used parsley. Very tasty, perfect portion sizes (i halved the recipe easily) and very yummy with the garlic bread. Will definitely be making this again.

Tasty and easy! Very good mid week supper. I couldn't get any dill so used parsley instead which worked well...think dill would have been tastier though. Without herbs it would be rather bland I feel. Think it would work really well with chunks of white fish too!

This is easy and tasty (dill is essential) but there is no way it would be a meal for four. I added some frozen peas and stirred in some fresh spinach towards the end to increase the veg count but even so this was only enough for a generous portion each for my husband and I.

This recipe is so quick and easy, any combination of seafood can be used, I used fish stock cube instead of chicken, seemed more appropriate and it worked well...lovely!

Totally amazing, the most tasty dish I've eaten in donkeys! Simple, quick and healthy. Garlic bread in an excellent addition, but thstew alone could stand for itself! It has my full recommendation!

A sure winner! :-)

It was an excellent recipe and the entire family, including my 3 year old niece, loved it! I didn't have wine at home, so used 3/4 th cup cooking sherry instead. Williams definitely do it again.

Very tasty and the wine provides the extra flavour. Dead easy to make but the portions are a bit stingy, so like another reviewer, we added some chunks of salmon steak.
A nice light -almost bland wine like a Pinot Grigio goes very well.

Oh this is lovely!! it was really easy and quick. I added additional veg of just rainbow celery stalks sliced into about 2cm pieces. I didn't have any wine in so I used cider instead and I couldn't get dill so used tarragon leaves from the garden. I cooked new potatoes separately and added them to the cooked stew a minute before adding the crème fraiche. The stew was served with the rainbow spinach leaves and tear and share garlic bread. My OH really loved it and said it exceeded far beyond gorgeous... high praise indeed:-)
