SPANISH FISH AND CLAM STEW
This is a rich hearty dish that will warm your cockles. It’s best served with a big piece of crusty bread to soak up all the juices! You can omit the clams and prawns if you want a simpler mid-week meal option.
Prep the vegetables and cut the fish into bite-sized pieces (around 2 cm wide).
Gently heat a large fry pan on the stove top. Add olive oil, onion, saute until soft. Add sliced chorizo. Continue to saute until the chorizo is golden. Add the paprika and stir for 30 seconds.
Add the stock, parsley, garlic and cherry tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper.
Bring to a simmer and cook until the potatoes are just cooked.
Add the prawns, fish, clams and whole lemon pieces. Press it all down into the juices so it starts to cook the seafood - gently move the seafood around the pan to get an even cook. Cook until the prawns turn pink and the clams are open. If any of the clams don’t open discard them.
Scoop into bowls, garnish with Italian parsley and serve with hot crusty bread.
