  1. Heat the oil in a pan, then add the onions, celery and a little salt. Cover, then gently fry until soft, about 10 mins. Put the parsley stalks, half the leaves, oil and seasoning into a food processor and whizz to a paste. Add this and the paprika to the softened onions, frying for a few mins. Tip in the peppers and tomatoes with a splash of water, then simmer for 10 mins until the sauce has reduced.
  2. Lay the fish and mussels on top of the sauce, put a lid on, then simmer for 5 mins until the fish is just flaking and the mussels have opened – discard any that stay shut. Gently stir the seafood into the sauce, season, then serve in bowls.

I just had this a meal for one and have found it lacklustre even though I used 2 teaspoons of paprika. I was also confused by the 'oil' in the paste, which bumps up the calorie count no end.

Still very healthy and I would use smoked paprika or add chilli flakes if I cook it again

Nice, simple recipe that is a feel-good feed for a freezing february night. haha!
A bit of confusion when the paste called for oil that had not been specified in the ingredient list, I had already used my 1 tbsp to cook onions.. just as well I had enough oil.

A lovely rich stew. I couldn't get mussels but used fish pie mix - a mix of salmon smoked haddock and white fish. Also added broad beans.

I ommited the celery as i am not keen on the taste, an otherwise lovely supper, great with some crusty bread for dunking

Great sauce, adapted the recipe and used it as a base for mussels only.
