Taking just over an hour to prepare and make, this dish is very simple and easy to make – once it’s on the heat, you can forget about it until nearly done.
Make sure you use Seafood which is as fresh as possible – if you’re using frozen Fish, make sure that it is thoroughly defrosted but still chilled.
To Serve 6
4tbsp Olive Oil
900g Onions, peeled and finely sliced
450g Thick Cod Fillets, skinned and cut into 5cm pieces
225g Plaice Fillets, skinned and quartered
175g Raw Tiger Prawns, peeled
Salt and Pepper
450g Plum Tomatoes, skinned, deseeded and chopped
2tbsp Tomato Puree
4tbsp Fresh Parsley, chopped
2tbsp Fresh Marjoram or Oregano, chopped
150ml Dry White Wine
225g Cooked Mixed Seafood
1. Heat half of the Oil in a large flameproof dish and cook the Onions over a low heat for five minutes until softened. Using a slotted spoon, lift out half of the Onions and set aside.
2. Spread the remaining Onions over the base of the dish, and cover with half of the Raw Fish and Prawns – don’t add any of the Mixed Cooked Fish yet. Season with plenty of Salt and Pepper to taste.
3. Cover half of the Tomatoes and the Tomato Puree, and then repeat the layers – Onion, Raw Fish and Prawns, then the Tomatoes. Sprinkle the Parsley and Marjoram on top, before pouring over the Wine. Drizzle the remaining Olive Oil over the top, and cook on a very Low heat for thirty minutes, or until the sauces have thickened slightly. Stir in the Mixed Seafood, and heat through on a higher heat for around five minutes.
