Mediterranean fish stew with garlic toasts

3 tbsp olive oil

1 large onion, sliced

2 garlic cloves, sliced

1 red chilli, finely chopped

2 tbsp tomato purée

1 kg tomatoes, roughly chopped

200ml white wine

350ml fish stock

3 strips orange zest

1kg skinless halibut fillets, cut into large chunks

500g large raw prawns

Handful of flat leaf parsley, chopped

1 large ciabatta loaf, cut into 1cm slices

5 tbsp olive oil

2 garlic cloves, halved

To make the garlic toasts, drizzle bread with oil, then grill until golden all over. While the toasts are still hot, rub them with a little garlic and leave to one side.

Heat the oil in a large, high frying pan. Tip in the onion and cook over a low heat for 5 minutes until softened. Mix in the garlic and chilli and cook for a further few minutes. Add the tomato purée and tomatoes. Increase the heat and cook for a further 10-15 minutes stirring until the tomatoes are soft. Pour in the wine and cook for 10 mins more until most of it has reduced.

Pour in the fish stock and orange zest and heat until bubbling gently. Add the halibut chunks into the liquid and cook for 5 mins. Add the prawns and cook for a further five minutes until the fish is thoroughly cooked. Sprinkle the parsley on top of the stew and serve with the garlic toasts.
