Coastweek - - Here is an excellent (Spanish) fish recipe kindly
contributed by English reader Mrs. Margaret Young, who lives near
 Aldeburgh (pronounced 'Orlbro') in Suffolk, U.K. She writes:

"like your Coastweek readers we enjoy a very good 'mediterranean'
diet with lots of fish, vegetables, fruit, salad, garlic and olive oil."


INGREDIENTS: (serves four to six as a main course)

  • Two pounds of any fish you like cut in bite size pieces and lightly poached or

  • seven table spoons of (good) olive oil

  • one onion finely chopped

  • six cloves garlic chopped or crushed

  • three medium potatoes peeled and cut into big dice

  • two red peppers cut into strips

  • four ripe tomatoes skinned and chopped or a tin of chopped tomatoes

  • two tablespoons of wine vinegar

  • quarter of a pint of pint dry white wine

  • quarter of a pint of fish stock or water

  • three bay leaves



  1. Fry onion, garlic, potato and red peppers in oil

  2. Add tomatoes and stir, then add rest of ingredients minus the fish.

  3. Cover and cook in preheated oven (180C) or on top of stove till potatoes are just tender (about 30 mins)

  4. Add fish and reheat slowly.

You can garnish with hard boiled egg and serve with a salad of lettuce and raw onion tossed in an olive oil and wine/ balsamic vinegar dressing.

This can be varied in all sorts of ways - should feed four to six !
