  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra to serve
  • 50g chorizo, peeled and thinly sliced



    A coarsely textured spiced pork sausage widely used in Spanish and Mexican cooking. It is made…

  • 450g salad or new potatoes, sliced (I used Charlotte)



    The world's favourite root vegetable, the potato comes in innumerable varieties. A member of…

  • 4 tbsp dry sherry, or more if you need it (or use white wine)
  • 2 skinless thick fillets white fish (I used sustainably caught haddock)
  • good handful cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 20g bunch parsley, chopped



    One of the most ubiquitous herbs in British cookery, parsley is also popular in European and…

  • crusty bread, to serve


  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 and tasty. As suggested by others, I doubled the quantity of chorizo. I used half a tin of cherry tomatoes including the juice. This meant there was plenty of sauce. And I also added some broccoli florets. My fish fillets were very thick, so in hind-sight I would alter some of the timings.

I made this the other night as my first recipe after deciding to start cooking properly. It was easy to make, didn't take long and tasted very good. I used home-grown potatoes which had a lovely, earthy taste which the sherry brought out very well.

I'd say that keeping the potatoes stirred is important as it's easy for them to get burnt. I'd also recommend, as others have pointed out, some sauce when the dish is finished to keep the fish interesting - tartar worked a treat as it always does.

It's a nice recipe, but a bit bland...
I made it with River Cobbler and added garlic at the beginning with the chorizo, and a bag of spinach with the tomatoes. I also pretty much doubled the amount of sherry, once I'd sloshed it over my tablespoon!
But I think what it really needs is quite a large amount of seasoning, and probably double the amount of chorizo quoted.
On the plus side, it's really quick and healthy for a mid-week meal, so I'll probably do it again, subject to the tweaks!

A really easy and tasty meal to do. I substituted the sherry with wine and used cod. I'm not a very good cook but, this meal was very easy to prepare and cook and tasted delicious! A must try, especially for beginners!

Very tasty and quick to make. I used smoked haddock which gave an extra depth of flavour. This dish will be a firm favourite now.

as suggested above I used 350g potatoes and gave 2 thirds of the potato mixture to my boyfried and i was plenty full with just a third, i added a little pack choy for the veg factor and was really yummy. you do need to just watch the potatoes both for sticking and also they are cooked before adding the fish. Very quick and easy for weekday meal

Loved this! Packed full of flavour. After reading everone else's comments i added wilted spinach too. My only (very small) critisism
is that there wasnt enough juice/sauce for my bread to soak up!

Really delicious recipe! I used white wine instead of sherry & forgot to buy tomatoes so I used 1/2 a tin of tomatoes instead & it was gobbled up by everyone including my 1 year old :)

Yummy, although it did take slightly longer to cook than stated. I used hake and roasted peppers in place of the cherry tomatoes.

Nice recipe, easy to make and tasty. Loads of potatoes but they were yummy so we ate them all.

Absolutely gorgeous - just ate this and had to pot before switiching off. Will make this again!

one of my favourite fish dishes. works well with tilapia (and very cheap!). usually add garlic and spinach.

Nice and quick. 15mins easily for the potatoes. We served ours with some wilted spinach.

Lovely recipe. Very simple ingredients which taste lovely. Left out the chorizo though. Served with olive bread.

Really good! Can't get haddock where I am, so I used Pacific Cod, and used the white wine instead of sherry (just because it's cheaper). The cherry tomatoes really brought out the flavour.

Beautiful recipe!!!! I added onions and spinach to it as suggested and everyone loved it, even my 14 month old!!! Will certainly be doing this one again.

Given the growing awareness of the unsustainability of haddock, I really think either coley or pollock should have been promoted by this recipe. Their names might not be as pretty but the fish tastes the same and they at least are not endangered. Otherwise a very nice recipe, thank you.

This was a really tasty recipe, but we decreased the potatoes and added spinach. Think this will become a favourite.
