  • 2 tbsps olive oil
  • 1 large red onion, peeled and sliced
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
  • 1 tsp finely sliced, de-seeded red chilli
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 100ml (3 1/2fl oz) white wine
  • 1 rounded tsp ground cumin
  • 1 rounded tsp ground coriander
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 300ml (1/2 pint) fish stock
  • 500g (1lb) new potatoes, thickly sliced

  • 250g (8oz) uncooked fresh prawns, peeled
  • 60g (2oz) olives stuffed with anchovy and pimento


  1. Heat the oil in a large pan, over a medium heat. Add the onion and cook slowly for about 8 mins, adding the garlic and chilli after 4 mins.
  2. Pour in the tomatoes and wine.
  3. Cook for a few minutes to reduce the liquid.

  6. Serve hot, in hot bowls with fresh bread, if you like.

15 minutes? What about prep and getting the potatoes to soften? Looking forward to it with some warm soda bread but the Sauvignon Blanc has vanished


Good recipe but the potatoes were still hard


Super recipe. We modified it slightly as one of us does not like olives - so these were omitted and we added a small amount of smoked paprika
