  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • 400g can chopped tomato
  • 1 fish stock cube
  • 200g raw peeled king prawn
  • ½ a 410g/14oz can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 500g skinless fish fillets, cut into very large chunks

Method

  1. In a small bowl, mix the parsley with ½ the garlic and lemon zest, then set aside. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a large sauté pan. Throw in the onion and potatoes, cover the pan, then sweat everything for about 5 mins until the onion has softened. Add the remaining oil, garlic and spices, then cook for 2 mins more.

  2. Pour over the lemon juice and sizzle for a moment. Add the tomatoes, ½ a can of water and crumble in the stock. Season with a little salt, then cover the pan. Simmer everything for 15-20 mins until the potatoes are just cooked.

  3. Stir through the prawns and chickpeas, then nestle the fish chunks into the top of the stew. Reduce the heat and recover the pan, then cook for about 8 mins, stirring very gently once or twice. When the fish is just cooked through, remove from the heat, scatter with the parsley mix, then bring the dish to the table with the bottle of olive oil for drizzling over and some crusty bread, if you want.

Delicious. I added extra chickpeas, water and an extra stock cube, and sprinkled with salt and olive oil croutons. Will make again

Followed the recommended changes in the comments and was fab - 1 tbsp Smoked paprika, Chickpeas added from the beginning, Prawns added at the very end to avoid overcooking, Subbed some fish for smoked version, Spinach stired through before serving. I also added some carrot in lieu of potatoes which was rather nice.

Great recipe and so easy to cook. I didn't have tinned tomatoes in the cupboard so used fresh tomatoes and 100ml of white wine and I used all the spice for two of us. It was delicious and we scored it 8/10 and we would repeat it

Nice recipe. I halved it but used 1tbsp paprika, 1/2tsp hot chill powder, 1 desert spoon of lemon juice (instead of a lemon and then used 1 tsp for the parsley garlic mix), 1 tsp of fish sauce instead of a fish stock cube, added 4 bits of frozen spinach, used 3/4 tin of tomatoes and served with rice.

Great recipe. Next time I'd use a whole tin of chickpeas, and cook the prawns for less than 8 minutes.

This was absolutely delicious! Added an extra clove of garlic and sweet potato also.

Delicious! Really really tasty recipe, even using dried parsley instead of fresh. I didn't have prawns and did have a pre-prepared fish pie mix which was salmon, cod and smoked haddock but it worked really well. I also used smoked paprika instead of ordinary which might have been why the smoked haddock worked in it. Definitely intend to be making this on a regular basis!

This was lovely winter warmer stew - however we found the lemon overpowering. Will make it again, but next time half the lemon and zest. Additional changes: instead of Potatoes (i'm intolerant of them) I added some pearl barley - pre cooked, and a whole can of chickpeas instead of half.

Delicious. Used tiger prawns with their shells on which was a bit messy to eat but looked and tasted really good.

Really enjoyed this recipe and it was easy to do. Lots of lovely flavours. I could imagine substituting the prawns or fish with chorizo for a variation. We used what sustainable white fish we could find and frozen prawns. I'm looking forward to having the leftovers for lunch.
