Recipes: Spanish Fish Stew

Hello everyone :) I thought I'd post something a bit different today and share with you one of the recipes I've been loving lately. If you're trying to be healthy this is a lovely meal to have with salad or you could serve it with some crunchy ciabatta bread. Of course you can switch up the ingredients to make it less spicy (take out the paprika and cayenne pepper) or replace with chicken if you don't like fish.

Ingredients (for 4 servings):

A handful of parsley
2 cloves of garlic
Juice of 1 lemon (or bottled lemon juice if you don't have and lemons)
3 tbsp of olive oil
1 onion, chopped
500g of floury potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
1tsp of paprika
A pinch of cayenne pepper
A tin of chopped tomatoes (Italian tomatoes are the best)
1 fish stock cube
A tin of chickpeas
200g of peeled, raw king prawns
500g of any white fish chunks of your choice (I use cod or basa)


Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a large pan and throw in the onion and potato. Cover for 5 minutes until the onion has softened, then add the remaining oil, garlic and spices and leave to simmer for 2 minutes. Pour in the lemon juice, tin of tomatoes, half a can of water and crumble in the stock cube. Season with a little salt, then cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes until the potatoes are soft. Stir in the prawns and chickpeas and place the chunks of fish in the pan so that they are covered by the sauce. Reduce the heat, place the lid back on and cook for around 8 minutes, stirring once or twice so that everything is heated evenly. Once the fish is cooked through, remove the heat and scatter with chopped parsley and serve!
