1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp fennel seeds
2 carrots, diced
2 celery sticks, diced
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 leeks, thinly sliced
400 g can chopped tomatoes
500 ml hot fish stock
2 skinless firm white fish fillets (about 200 g), thawed if frozen and cut into chunks
85 g raw shelled king prawns
- Heat the oil in a large pan, add the fennel seeds, carrots, celery and garlic, and cook for 5 mins until starting to soften. Tip in the leeks, tomatoes and stock, season and bring to the boil, then cover and simmer for 15-20 mins until the vegetables are tender and the sauce has thickened and reduced slightly.
- Add the fish, scatter over the prawns and cook for 2 mins more until lightly cooked. Ladle into bowls and serve with a spoon.
