This is a meal that I tend to do when I’m home alone. Its a no-fuss, let’s see what we have kind of meal. And I’m the only one that likes tinned tomatoes.



You can play around with any of the ingredients, so long as you have fish, veg, and tinned tomatoes.

Here’s the basics:

  • 1 onion
  • 1/2 leek
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1-2 cans of tomatoes
  • 2 frozen fish fillets – I tend to go for basa or haddock. You can add fresh salmon towards the end of cooking time.
  • chopped anchovies
  • capers
  • olives
  • chilli flakes
  • king prawns or clams (in their shells)
  • green beans
  • frozen peas
  • chopped asparagus
  • sliced ginger
  • sliced kale
  • some basil leaves
  • parsley

You can be very flexible with the ingredients. I gently fry the onion and garlic, then add the tinned tomatoes.

I put the fish in frozen – it takes bout 20 minutes to cook though.

Then I add frozen peas, capers and olives

Add the veg and prawns, with a mind to cooking times, and finally the basil – or parsley

If I have rice or pasta cooked, that’s fine. Otherwise it is lovely in a bowl, eaten with a spoon, in front of the TV.
