Preparation method

  1. Start by using a medium sized saucepan and adding the fish stock to the pan before bringing to the boil. Add the mussels to the pan and cook for around 10 minutes before straining the stock and placing to the side.
  2. Using a large pan, place the pan on a medium heat before adding the garlic and the onions. Fry both ingredients until they have become soft before adding the fish and frying for a few moments.
  3. Add the tomato, chilli pastes, bay leaf and the oregano into the pan before seasoning with salt and pepper. Cook for around 5 minutes before adding the wine into the pan and bringing the pan to the boil. Leave the pan to simmer on a medium heat for around 5 minutes.
  4. Add the fish stock, soy sauce, coriander and parsley into the dish before leaving to simmer.
  5. When the dish has begun to simmer, add the prawns to the dish, waiting a few minutes before adding the scallops and then the mussels and squid. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Serve with lemon juice and minced spring onion.
