  1. Heat a large lidded frying pan, then add the oil. Tip in the chorizo, fry for 2 mins until it starts to release its oils, then tip in the potatoes and some seasoning. Splash over 3 tbsp Sherry, cover the pan tightly, then leave to cook for 10-15 mins until the potatoes are just tender. Move them around the pan a bit halfway through.

  2. Season the fish well. Give the potatoes another stir, add the cherry tomatoes and most of the chopped parsley to the pan, then lay the fish on top. Splash over 1 tbsp Sherry, put the lid on again, then leave to cook for 5 mins, or until the fish has turned white and is flaky when prodded in the middle. Scatter the whole dish with a little more parsley and drizzle with more extra virgin oil. Serve straight away with crusty bread.

Nice enough recipe but the cooking times for the potatoes and the fish were too short.

We cut our new potatoes into pieces around half a centimetre wide, maybe less - perhaps your potato pieces were larger than the recipe expected?

I wasn't that keen on this, much nicer recipes on good food. Think it neede more vegetables as others have suggested like spinach or peppers. Was ok just a bit boring.

Really enjoyed this recipe. Some slight variation on the ingredients listed due to availability of products here in New Zealand but it turned out really great. Very tasty. Haddock wasn't available so used Basa, and the Chorizo wasn't as good /authentic here as is in Europe which may have given a different flavour overall. Potatoes take longer to cook than stated as already mentioned in previous comments but not really a problem. Give it a go, very fresh, healthy, colourful, simple and tasty.

I did add to this recipe - a yellow pepper, a red onion and some garlic at the beginning and some fine green beans 5 minutes before the end. I also par-boiled the sliced potatoes for 5 minutes based on the other comments. The haddock was also quite thick so I ended up cooking it for 9 minutes instead of five. I thought it was a nice, tasty, quick and easy meal that you can adapt depending on what veg you have. Next time I think I would also double the chorizo and perhaps add a little paprika.

Very tasty. I used cod in place of haddock and doubled the chorizo, as suggested by others. The only negative was the chorizo which was burnt to a crisp.

Very nice. Tasty, healthy and easy to make. I also added wilted spinach at the end and added extra chorizo to the dish which really helped. The chorizo really makes this dish. My one gripe (hence the 4 stars) is that there is no way the potatoes only take 20 mins to cook. More like an hour - and I had mine sliced pretty thinly. I will make this dish again but I will par boil the potatoes first and probably add some garlic in there too.

Surprising super-hit! I added a minced clove of garlic, half a teaspoon of oregano and a splash of port (in addition to the white wine) just before adding the cherry tomatoes. At the end, there were juices left in the pan which I de-glazed with some more white wine and thickened a bit for a nice sauce to pour over the fish. Yummy!

Nothing special. Used whiting fillets which were lovely but there are nicer recipes (on this site!!).

I had this book marked for ages but didn't get around to cooking it. So glad I did, it's really yum! I just fried the chorizo without any extra oil to release it's own oils, then added the potato and browned it off until nearly cooked. I squeezed a bit of lemon juice over at the end too. So healthy and so tasty!
