Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, then soften the onion for 5 mins. Add the rosemary, chorizo and garlic, then fry for 2 mins more until the chorizo is starting to crisp. Tip in the passata, beans, cabbage and sugar, season, then simmer for 5 mins.
  2. Add the fish to the pan, leaving the tops of the fillets peeking out of the sauce, then cover with a lid and leave to cook for 3-5 mins or until the flesh flakes easily. Delicious served with crusty bread.

Delicious!!!! Made it pretty much according to the recipe, i used about 50g chorizo and used half passata and half a tin of chopped tomatos. I served with some wholemeal pasta and bread. I will make this again without a doubt as it is so tasty, my boyfriend absolutley loved this one as did i.

I added some chilli flakes for an extra kick and pan-fried the fillets. Very quick, tasty mid week meal.

Good for a winter's evening - next time I would add half the amount of cabbage, it totally took over the dish. And the chorizo was hardly noticeable so I'd add more of this and a touch more sugar.

Very easy, but I did let the mixture cook for a little longer than suggested as I wanted my flavours to properly mingle.

Very easy to cook and loved the taste!

This was good. My reservation would be that the spicy sauce is a bit overpowering for the fish - it could work just as well, or better, with chicken (in which case it be very similar to Smoky Chicken & Bean Stew - try combining the best of both recipes) or even as a soup/stew in its own right. Having said that, it was and an unusual combination, so I'll definitely experiment and try it again.

i loved this, lovely flavours. my partner forgot to add the pinch of sugar though which it definitely needed. we made it with haddock which tasted great. quick and easy as well.
