2 red onions, diced
600g diced swede and carrot
1 red chilli, sliced
2 tsp paprika
700ml chicken stock, made with 1 stock cube
390g carton chopped tomatoes
1 tbsp tomato pureé with garlic
2 yellow peppers, sliced

100g (bag) baby leaf spinach
2 limes, one squeezed and one cut into wedges
1 bunch coriander, roughly chopped

1. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the onions and season, then cook for 5 minutes or until softened. Add the swede and carrot and sauté on a low heat for 10 minutes.

2. Add the chilli, paprika, stock, chopped tomatoes and tomato pureé. Sauté for 5 minutes. Add the peppers and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes. 

3. Add the prawns and cod and place a lid on top of the pan. Cook for 5 minutes over a medium-high heat. Take off the heat and add the spinach. Allow it to wilt, stirring occasionally. Add the juice of one lime and sprinkle over the coriander. Serve with the lime wedges.

Recipe from

Coriander is one of the world's most commonly used herbs - in spite of the fact that the name comes from the Greek, koris, meaning bed bug! It is green, leafy and strong-smelling with a fresh, citrus taste that makes it an invaluable garnish and flavour enhancer. Both the fresh leaves and stalks are edible, as well as the berries, which are dried and called coriander seeds. Native to southern Europe and the Middle East, the plant is now grown worldwide. Coriander tends to be associated most with Asian and Central and South American cooking. For maximum flavour, it is best added to dishes just before serving.

Do not clean coriander with the roots still attached - instead, simply keep them wrapped in a damp paper towel inside an open plastic bag and store in the salad drawer of the fridge, where they should last five to six days.

That looks delicious though I have to admit that I've never ever tried seafood in a stew. It just doesn't sound appetising to me, though I love things like Paella so I bet it's something I would enjoy.
