Ingredients

  • 1 portion Ultimate tomato sauce
  • Handful fresh thyme sprigs, leaves picked
  • 200g roasted red peppers from a jar, drained and cut into strips
  • 200g raw chorizo, cut into chunks
  • 500g sustainably-caught cod or pollock fillets, skinned and cut into large chunks

Method

  1. Place the tomato sauce in a large, sealable plastic container, and add the thyme leaves and red peppers.
  2. Heat a frying pan over a medium heat, add the chorizo and fry until just crisp and the oil is starting to be released. Cool, then add the chorizo and its oil to the sauce and mix well. Add the raw fish, make sure it is covered by the sauce, then seal the container well and freeze for up to 2 months.
  3. Defrost the stew in the fridge overnight, then transfer to a deep frying pan, bring to a simmer and cook for 5-6 minutes until the cod is cooked through. Serve with buttered rice or mash.

  1. Fish cooks very quickly, so it’s best to freeze the fish raw – this will stop it overcooking when you heat the stew. Make sure that the meat or fish is covered by the sauce before freezing, to protect it from freezer burn.
