  • 170g (6oz) peeled prawns
  • 2tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 x 400g can chopped tomatoes

  • 1 large bayleaf
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 1-2 drops Tabasco sauce
  • 1 bouquet garni
  • Pinch of saffron strands

You can chop and change the fish you use for this stew, depending on what's fresh and available at your supermarket or fishmonger's.


  1. Heat the oil and sauté the onion and garlic until soft.
  2. Stir in the tomatoes, stock, bayleaf, seasoning, Tabasco, bouquet garni and saffron. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. Add the cubes of firm fish - such as monkfish, huss and conger eel - and simmer for 2-3 mins.
  4. Add the more delicate fish - mullet, cod and haddock - and simmer for a further 5 mins.
  5. Stir in the prawns and cook for another 2 mins. Remove the bouquet garni and the bayleaf.
  6. Sprinkle with parsley and serve with French bread, a continental salad and garlic mayonnaise.
