Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large pan and add the peppers, onion and potatoes. Cook, stirring regularly for 5-8 mins until golden. Then add the paprika, garlic, thyme and tomatoes. Bring to the boil, stir and cover, then turn down heat and simmer for 12 mins. Add a splash of water if the sauce becomes too thick.

  2. Season the stew and lay the salmon on top, skin side down. Place the lid back on and simmer for another 8 mins until the salmon is cooked through. Scatter with parsley, if you like, and serve.

Having read the reviews, I cooked this for five hungry people. I added the extra tin of tomatoes and more garlic, some black pitted kalamata olives and substituted diced sweet potato for the new potatoes. I also pan fried the salmon briefly skin side down to get it nice and crispy, then but put it in the pot skin side up for 8 mins to finish off. Served with coucous, very well received.

Made this many times, never fails. Put in 2 x tins of toms. I use frozen salmon which I chop into chucks and mix in towards the end. Oh...and I always double the garlic... lovely :0))

Very Nice, didn't bother with potatoes and made double the sauce with a splash of tabasco when served. Really tasty! will do again

Really tasty recipe. Needed more liquid than the tinned tomatoes gave so I just added some splashes of boiling water and it was fine. I also parboiled the potatoes for 10 minutes first as I find all these recipes that call for potatoes cooked in sauce never cook properly in the time allocated. I also added sliced chorizo (which I fried up with the veg) which to me made the dish - hence the 4 not 5 stars. I don't think this recipe would have been half as good without the chorizo.

Nice although I feel I am missing something as there really wasn't enough liquid with just the tomatoes. I added 3 quarters of a fish stock cube plus about 2 tins of water and it worked really well. This also meant there was plenty of water to boil the potatoes in. I didn't have parsley so used dried dill instead and I only had a handful of baby potatoes so used sweet potato in addition and it was delicious. I also fried off some celery with the onions and peppers at the beginning which also added a bit more colour, texture and flavour.

Excellent recipe - tasty, straightforward and pescatarian friendly! I followed the tips from other commenters and par-boiled the potatoes first, which was definitely a good shout. I also cooked the veggies and the fish a couple of minutes longer than the recipe said and seasoned the whole thing with salt and pepper at various stages. So good, I was asked for the recipe afterwards. Very pleased to add this dish to my repertoire.

Very nice. I removed the skin from the salmon & cut the salmon into large chunks & added some prawns & mussels. I also increased the amount of smoked paprika to 3tsp & added plenty of freshly ground black pepper & sea salt. Will be a favourite.
