Piri Piri Marinade:

  • 2 to 4 fresh chilli peppers
  • 2 lemons
  • 1 tbsp chopped coriander
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 2 garlic cloves

Fish Stew:

  • 500g fish fillets
  • 3 medium-size potatoes
  • 2 tomatoes

  • 400ml fish stock
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 8 dried apricots
  • 100g  prawns

Remove the seeds from the chilli peppers and chop the chilli finely. Squeeze the lemons and add the juice to the chopped coriander, 1 tablespoon oil and chopped chili peppers. Add the mashed garlic and mix to a purée in a small processor.

Rub the fish with the marinade and let it rest for at least 30 minutes in a cool place. Wash the potatoes and tomatoes and cut them into wedges. Peel the onions and cut them into four pieces. Heat the remaining oil and the butter in the casserole and fry the onions and potatoes.

Add the fish stock, ginger, tomatoes and apricots. Let simmer for 15 minutes.

Put the pieces of fish, prawns and mussels into the sauce. If needed, add some more stock. Let the stew simmer for 10 to 15 minutes.

Serve with fresh coriander.
