Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and cook the onion and celery until soft but not coloured, about 10 mins. Throw in the garlic and cook for 1 min more. Pour in the wine and simmer on a high heat until most has disappeared.

  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.

Wonderful! Did need a little bulking out as advised by other commentators so I added potato. Tastes amazing.

Loved this soup and I'm never much of a fan of fish! There's no way it would have fed 4 people in our house, there was only enough for one bowl each for me and my husband. Will definitely be making it again

Really enjoyed this!! I doubled the garlic because we love it and also just used prawns and smoked salmon instead of mixed seafood. To serve, I mixed with spaghetti, very yummy!

I like the idea of adding spaghetti, we will try that next time. Thanks for the tip!

This is really nice but there's no way this is a substantial meal for 4 adults. I made it for me and my husband plus our 2 kids and I was still hungry afterwards. I think the problem is, there's nothing very filling in it. Next time I might try putting some potatoes in it to bulk it out as my tummy was rumbling by eight o'clock!

Loved this. I also used leeks (as an addition) tastes so indulgent for something that's pretty healthy!

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.

Can this be frozen?

Hi madfan, thanks for your question. We would advise not to freeze ingredients like meat and fish that have already been frozen once before, such as the seafood in this recipe so we would suggest not freezing any leftovers. However, this similar recipe http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/1167640/creamy-prawn-and-spring-vegetable-pot would be fine to freeze or you could try using freshly cooked seafood. Hope this helps.

Sounds fab! Is it right to use chicken stock though?

Hi there. Yes the recipe uses chicken stock as it's an ingredient most people have already, feel free to use fish or vegetable stock if you prefer though. Thanks.

To bulk it out a little, try adding diced potatoes. Would also work with leeks and/or peas.
