Simple Fish Stew

A delicious healthy, low calorie, one pot fish stew. Perfect for a midweek tea, really quick, easy and simple, but full of flavour.

Using white fish is a great way to lower the calories of a dish.Β  To make this even lighter you could use more white fish and leave out the prawns, or try monkfish if its in season. Monkfish, is a meaty fish, with a similar texture to prawns, but about 2/3 of the calories.

If you are eating with someone who needs the extra calories, you could serve this with a jacket potato or over rice, for them.
