  2. Pour in the stock and cornflour mix and simmer for 5-10 mins, stirring often until thickened. Season, then add the seafood and most of the dill. Simmer for a few mins until piping hot, then stir in the crème fraîche.

  3. Meanwhile, cook the garlic bread following pack instructions. Divide the stew into warm bowls and scatter with the remaining dill. Serve with garlic bread for dipping into the stew.

Fantastic. First time I made it I had to improvise since I had no celery or onion and used chopped leeks instead: really delicious! Nice and easy recipe too (helpful for people like me who aren't natural chefs) Will definitely be making this again and again.

We love this dish, and I never change a thing...which is a rarity for me!!! So easy to make after a hard day at work!

Loved it! Same as another comment used 350g bag of frozen seafood and still plenty if split to two portions for adult main meal. Will certainly be making again!

Delicious! I left out the celery and used 350g seafood - it was just right for two. I'll be making this one again - so simple to make and impressive looking. The dill does make all the difference.

Really lovely healthy meal. Agree that the portions are small so added a bag of mixed salmon, smoked haddock and cod to bulk it out. Definitely will make again.

I love this...I've made it sooo many times, and every I have cooked it for love it too! Tonight is the first time I have strayed from the exact recipe, as I was missing several ingredients, I used chicken stock instead of fish, no dill, no celery but extra onion, and I added a red chilli with the garlic. Was still really good, but I missed the dill! Next time I';m going to add some risotto rice, after adding the wine and use red pepper instead of celery and try it as a paella style risotto dish!

Very tasty meal - if only all restaurant food was this tasty. Recipe was only enough for 2 adults though. I guess it could be bulked out with some veg or fish to make it for 3-4. Would have to say that its the sauce which provides tha flavour, rather than the seafood, so I guess there are options to play around with what's cooked in the sauce. I imagine that using fresh seafood would make this spectacular - though would obviously require properly cooking it. The dill is a key part of the dish, though would suggest only using a bit (maybe 4-5 stalks) as it could overpower the other flavours. I used a Muscadet (and drank the rest with the meal), which went perfectly.

I have made this a few times and my family (finicky husband and a 4 year old ) and I absolutely love it. I used a mix of shrimp, mussels and octopus. The dill is essential- don't leave it out! And the garlic bread goes with it perfectly.
