  1. Put the potatoes in a saucepan of cold salted water and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 15-20 mins or until cooked but still firm. Drain and, when cool enough to handle, thickly slice.

  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large saucepan over a low-medium heat. Add the onion, celery, garlic, anchovy and chilli, season and cook for 8 mins or until softened. Increase the heat to medium-high, add the tomatoes, wine and stock, and cook for 15 mins. Add the prawns, lemon juice, capers and potatoes. Cook for 5 mins more, or until the prawns turn pink and are just cooked. Mix together the parsley and lemon zest, then scatter over the stew, then serve with toasted bread, for dunking.

Lovely meal but I could tell it was very low in fat. Personally I found it really enhanced by buttering the toast.

I made this for dinner it’s ok love everything except the stew sauce itself I find it a little salty. I think maybe making your own tomato sauce from scratch will be better.

I made this for dinner last night and improvised using leftovers in the fridge. I started by softening celery, leeks, red onion and garlic in a pan before adding the tinned tomatoes, vegetable stock and white wine. Once the sauce had reduced I added x2 packs of Tesco raw king prawns (about 330g), lemon juice and chopped new potatoes. Sprinkling the plate with parsley and lemon zest really made it. My recipe made 3 generous portions / 4 lighter portions. If you're going to make this, definitely opt for raw prawns as they remain lovely and juicy once cooked.

So good! Quick to make, healthy, and really delicious.

Yuk! The ingredients did not go well together.

Made this last night and it was delicious. I didn't add the wine and scattered garlic along with lemon zest into the parsley. I think I'll add another teaspoon of capers next time along with some red pepper. Served with cauliflower rice. Def will be making this again!

Yum. I missed out the wine because I didn't have any. Forgot the capers! Stirred the zest into the sauce and scattered the parsley over at the end. Served it with soda bread and it was delish.

Delicious! Next time I think I will add a slight dash of cream or natural yoghurt to the sauce. But also it was lovely just as it was.

Omitted the wine, but still a lovely week night meal.

Yum yum yum. Added 2/3 of the juice of a lemon following other comments and it turned out perfectly. Served with garlic bread.
