This seafood stew uses haddock and mixed seafood cocktail.
You could use any white fish and mussels, whelks, cockles or whatever mixture of frozen seafood you prefer.
A mixture of wet and smoked haddock would be nice as it would give a bit of smoky flavor to the stew.
Avoid oily fish such as tuna, salmon, mackerel and similar. They do tend to make a layer of grease.
If you like your stews a bit thicker, then you could either use cornstarch (cornflour) for thickening or finely grate half of the potato into the cooking liquid.
This will thicken up the liquid quite effectively.
A complete meal in one pot which is good for washing up :-)
Mixed Fish Stew
1lb (450g) haddock - skinned, boned and cut into bite sized chunks
1lb (450g) seafood cocktail - defrosted
1 onion - peeled and chopped
1 clove garlic - peeled and crushed
2 fish stock cubes with 1 pint water or 1 pint fish or vegetable stock
1 can chopped tomatoes or passata
1.5 lbs (675g) peeled cubed potatoes
1 tbspn olive oil
8 oz (225g) peas or mixed veg - defrosted
handful fresh chopped parsley
salt and pepper to taste
Heat the oil in a large pan and gently fry the onion and garlic until softened.
Add the stock and tomatoes (if using cubes, dissolve in 1 pint of boiling water) and bring to the boil.
Add the potatoes and simmer for about 10 minutes or so until they're tender.
Add the fish and peas and simmer for 2 minutes.
Add the seafood cocktail and parsley and simmer for a further 2 minutes.
Serve immediately - I like crusty bread and butter with this (actually, I like crusty bread and butter period)
