You will need:

  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1tsp powdered saffron
  • 5-7tbsp good tomato sauce
  • 300ml fish stock
  • 675g monkfish, cod or other white fish, skinned and chunked
  • 5-6tbsp thick cream
  • 175g pitted olives
  • salt and black pepper
  • 1tbsp chopped parsley

Heat the oil in a pan and fry the onion and garlic until softened but not browned. Add the peppers, saffron, sauce and stock. Bring to the boil and simmer for about 5 minutes.
Add the chunks of fish and stir whilst it gently cooks. After a few minutes, when the fish is firm, stir in the cream and season to taste. Cook gently for a further 4-5 minutes, then serve sprinkled with parsley.
