45 mins mins
Difficulty: Medium


2 medium onions, chopped
4 garlic cloves, sliced
1 large green pepper, sliced
40g olive oil
15g flat leaf parsley, chopped
Pinch of saffron
200g potatoes, peeled and diced
2 bay leaves
4 large ripe tomatoes
30g tomato paste
100ml dry white wine
250ml water
200g squid, cleaned and sliced
15 clams
300g white fish
150g large raw prawns
12 whole mussels
Salt and pepper
Crusty bread


  • In a large pan, sweat off the onion, garlic, and green peppers in the olive oil for 10 minutes. Cover to stew for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally
  • Add the parsley, saffron, potatoes, bay leaves, tomatoes, tomato paste, wine, water, and season with pepper. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes
  • Add the squid and clams. Simmer for another 5 minutes
  • Add the fish, prawns and mussels in layers but don’t stir. Cover and cook for about 10 minutes so the fish is fully cooked and mussels and clams are open. Discard any shellfish that hasn’t opened
  • Check the seasoning and serve the stew with crusty bread

Top Tip: Serve the fish stew in bread bowls for a showstopper. Simply remove the inside of a cobb loaf and bake for 8 minutes, then add the stew.
