Mackerel (Tuna or Chorizo) & Red Pepper Stew

Fantastic stew with a spanish theme!


Orignial recipe came from a fresh magazine. It has great colours and even better taste, I have substituted mackerel for tuna and it was all good. To make it IPD freindly, omit the potatoes and serve with cauli rice or a celeriac mash

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 garlic clove
1 teaspoon dried chilies
1/4 pint white wine
400g chopped tomatoes
1 lb potatoes, cubed (I leave the skin on but original recipe said to peel them)
1 teaspoon paprika
1 juicy red pepper
2 mackerel fillets, cut into chunks or tuna fillets, flaked or 2 pieces chunks chorizo sausage
chopped fresh coriander

  1. Heat oil, fry onions for 3-4 minutes till soft.
  2. Add garlic and chilli, stir for 1 minute ,
  3. Pour in the wine, tomatoes, potatoes then sprinkle over the paprika.
  4. Stir well.
  5. Add 1/2 a tomato tin of water, cover and simmer for 25 minutes until potatoes are cooked.
  6. Grill peppers, blister skin, then place into a plastic bag, until the skin is easy to remove. Once removed slice then add to the pan with the fish / chorizo. Alternativly as life is too short, open a jar of ready roasted red peppers (IPD'r watch the sugar content on your chosen brand!)
  7. Simmer until cooked through. This will take longer for the chorizo than the fish.
  8. Sprinkle with coriander and paprika before serving.
