Snapper, Prawns and Scallops Stew.

I was fallowing my heart, when designing this dish. Ingredients by themselves, are delicious, just needed to add a little flavour to them. And the combination with polenta is incredible.


Snapper- 1 large fillet, cut in medium size pieces.

Scallops- 10 pieces.

Prawns- 200 g (whole) peeled and deveined.

Carrot-1 medium, peeled and roughly chopped.

Onion-1 roughly chopped.

Celery- 2 sticks, roughly chopped.

Garlic-3-5 cloves,finely chopped.

Tomato paste- 1 tablespoon.

White Dry Wine- 1/2 bottle.

Thyme, Oregano, Sage bouquet .


Salt, pepper.


In a processor, crush carrot, onion and celery.

Heat an oil in a pan to high, add garlic and briefly cook, add prawns and cook for a couple of minuets, set aside.

Add a bit more oil to the pan and add all the veggies mixture.

Cook, stirring for about 5 minuets, add tomato paste, stir.

Now add the wine, cook for a couple of minuets.

Add fish and a bouquet. Cook uncovered for 10 minuets , add prawns cook for a further 3 minuets.

At this stage add your scallops, salt pepper and after 2 minuets it’s done. Serve with polenta.

    That looks delicious, unfortunately I live so far inland there would be no good snapper. I might try it with the frozen though.

      Thank you, frozen should work, just defrost it before cooking.:)
