  • toasted bread, to serve


  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.

I liked this a lot but found it a bit salty, next time I would rinse the anchovies under water. I left out the wine but still found it very tasty.

Wow, this was delicious!! Hubby and I devoured the whole lot with some lovely garlic bread! I may leave out the potatoes next time but this will definitely become a favourite in our home! Than you.

Nice enough but I only used the juice of half a lemon and myself & my boyfriend agreed that with the zest too, even this was too much and really overpowered the dish. If I were to make it again I'd use just a dash of lemon juice.

Made this for myself and gf, I used fish stock instead of veg stock... 6 anchovies and 3 tsp of capers and a generous sprinkle of dried chill, Followed the recipe exactly and it tasted amazing, only problem is, its now my gf favourite meal and I have to cook it every week!

Really enjoyed this - didnt use wine, doubled stock instead used chicken. Added a fresh chilli as well as flakes and omitted capers added extra anchovies. Really tasty

Excellent dish and low calorie. As it already included potatoes nothing else was needed (hence no extra calories), we didn't serve with garlic bread and that was fine. Got stuck with left over anchovies so made egg mayonnaise and anchovy sandwiches which are a favourite anyway. This has won a place in my keep that recipe folder. Recommended.
