  1. Put the potatoes in a saucepan of cold salted water and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 15-20 mins or until cooked but still firm. Drain and, when cool enough to handle, thickly slice.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large saucepan over a low-medium heat. Add the onion, celery, garlic, anchovy and chilli, season and cook for 8 mins or until softened. Increase the heat to medium-high, add the tomatoes, wine and stock, and cook for 15 mins. Add the prawns, lemon juice, capers and potatoes. Cook for 5 mins more, or until the prawns turn pink and are just cooked. Mix together the parsley and lemon zest, then scatter over the stew, then serve with toasted bread, for dunking.

Yummy! I added some frozen peas right at the very end, and didn't have any anchovies, but still delicious! I liked that the celery still had some bite to it (without being too raw).

Gonna give this a bash but add more anchovies and no celery - think I'll replace that with a small amount of wholemeal pasta.

Very nice.

Used half a tin of tuna as no anchovies and salty Greek olives as no capers which did the same job of fishying/salting it up. Added some green pepper and pepperoni that needed using in the fridge as extras at step two, and served with green beans when done.

Will definitely make again, maybe with the proper ingredients!

Made this and I don't know why but it all went into the bin. It was very tasteless as far as we were concerned. Maybe the above comment of adding more seafood would help.

Followed this recipe using a bag of mixed seafood (prawns, mussels and squid) and tinned cherry tomatoes. Delicious! The anchovies and capers gave it an extra tang.
