Sea food stew


These are not exactly the ingredients you would combine  in a stew. Yet you will be surprised from the hearty flavor and deliciousness. It`s  important for the great taste in any sea food meal is to have it fresh. Frozen could be an option, but there is nothing better than the daily catch (or at least this is what they claim in our local supermarket:)). Before I give you the list with the ingredients I want to underline that I did not use any salt as the recipe is with smoked herring. The fish is salty enough and it taste heavenly. If you decide to try it with fresh fish then season according to your taste.


– 500 g fresh prawns

– 300 g fresh mussels

– 1 smoked herring

– 1 can white beans

– 1 can red beans

– 1 can chickpeas

– 1 can tomatoes

– 250 g Brussel sprouts

– 1 lemon

– 1 stalk spring onion

– 250 pickled gherkins

– 100 ml olive oil

– 2 garlic cloves

– 1 tsp turmeric

– black pepper


Preheat 1 tbsp olive oil and saute one garlic clove, the prawns and mussels together with the turmeric. Cut the smoked fish into slices, chop the ingredients and mix together in  a baking tray. Season well with generous amount of olive oil and black pepper (skip the salt as mentioned). Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius, add the prawns and mussels to the rest of ingredients and bake for 45 minutes.
