  • 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.

I have cooked this recipe before from a spanish foodie book from library, only it did not have the chick peas in and was fabulous tastes, cheaper cuts of white fish work best i think, pollack, Coley, and haddock bits, keep them all in large pieces so they don't break up. I shall now try with the chick peas added.

Agree with spice comments - no more needed, just right. Used a whole tin of chickpeas. Cut fish a little too small so it broke up but didn't ruin the meal. Very tasty and will definitely cook again.

What a great and easy dish! Used full jar or chickpeas and jar of Cannaloni beans (Made double quantity). Added slightly more parsley at the end, It will become a staple dish here in Spain!

Both my husband & son thought it was fantastic! I substituted butter beans for chick peas and didn't have any cayenne pepper so used hot chilli powder instead which worked well - the lemon really makes the dish, so don't leave it out. I think I'll try it with freshly baked bread the next time I have anyone over for dinner. A hit!

Apart from doubling up on the garlic ingedients I stuck to the recipe (I used haddock for the fish). This stew was delicious! We had it with some fresh crusty bread and butter. It would make a great lunch, dinner or supper. Simply excellent and so easy to make...

I like this but found that the potatoes didn't cook through in the time given. When we cooked it a second time we didn't use any potatoes and added olives.

Made this as a mid week meal for a group of girl friends. Universally well received and enjoyed by all. I made a very generous amount, everyone had seconds. I served it with homemade olive oil bread, a huge salad and garlic mayo. Will def do again, soooo easy and delicious.
