When it comes to mid-week meals, most of us stick to the same stock recipes, but as the saying goes, a change is as good as a rest.

Many of us think of fish as a summer product, but it also fits really well in more wintery recipes.

In addition, it is high in vitamins and minerals, high in protein and close to Omega-3, so there are some major health benefits to adding more fish to your diet.

We have teamed up with Love Seafood to provide you with two quick, easy and affordable mid-week meals that will help you add more fish to your diet.

The two recipes below are fresh bids on family favorites and will warm your stomachs and put smiles on faces all winter long.

Italian-style fish stew

  • 400 g boneless, skinless cod loin or fillets
  • 1 vegetable bouillon cube with reduced salt content
  • 500 ml passata with garlic
  • 400 g canned chopped tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano or mixed Italian herbs
  • 500 g pack of gnocchi
  • 1 bag chopped kale, stalks removed
  • Crispy bread for serving (optional)

Method

  1. Prepare the fish by dabbing it dry with a paper towel, and then cut it into 5 cm pieces. Cover and set aside.
  2. Dissolve the bouillon cube in 500 ml of boiling water.
  3. Put the passata, chopped tomatoes, herbs and broth in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes, then allow the liquid to reduce by a third.
  4. Add the gnocchi and kale and let it simmer again so the gnocchi and kale can boil through.
  5. Carefully toss the cod pieces into the stew and fry for another 3-4 minutes, or until the cod is cooked through and lightly flakes.
  6. Serve the stew in large bowls, possibly with fresh bread.
