Ingredients: Serves 2

  • 2 hake steaks
  • 2 giant prawns
  • 4 tiger prawns
  • 1/2 an onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 a red pepper, diced

  • 1 tsp tomato puree

  1. Start by shelling the smaller tiger prawns.
  2. Simmer in a pot with the wine and the fish stock cube until the liquid has reduced by about half.
  3. Strain and keep the liquid aside.
  4. Meanwhile, sweat the onion in some oil until softened, then add the garlic, red pepper, carrot, chilli, tomato puree, paprika and turmeric.
  5. Cook for a couple more minutes until everything is beginning to soften.
  6. Add the strained wine, cream and coconut milk and mix together.
  7. Place the hake in and cook through for 10-15 minutes.
  8. Hold the giant prawns over the hob flame for around 30 seconds each to bring out some of the flavours from the shells.
  9. Then add to the pot with the smaller prawns and simmer for 5 minutes or so until cooked.
  10. Squeeze in the lime juice then serve garnished with coriander alongside plenty of bread to soak up the sauce.
