BUY FROM A SUSTAINABLE SOURCE
Concerned about over-fishing? Organically farmed cod is a sustainable option. You’ll find it in supermarkets under the ‘No catch’ label.
MAKE IT WITH CHICKEN
Chunky chicken stew: Cook the garlic, cumin and paprika as before. Cut 300g new potatoes in half and 4 skinless chicken breasts into chunks. Stir the potatoes into the pan along with the tomatoes and water, bring up to the boil, then simmer for 5 mins. Add the chicken and peppers, then simmer for another 10 mins; the chicken should be cooked through and the potatoes tender. Serve with coriander and lemon.
