Halászlé – Hungarian Fishermans Stew. Low Carb and Lush 😍
The weather is truly terrible, it’s raining so hard, it wouldn’t surprise me to see the Ark sailing past the window – and we live at the top of a huge hill….
I started with a pack of Aldi frozen Cod, defrosted.
I finely slice 2 medium onions, 2 bell peppers, 3 fat cloves of garlic, Homegrown Courgettes, a good pinch of salt and pepper.
Fry the onions and Courgettes off in a glug of olive oil
Add the peppers, a teaspoon of Paprika, one of Sweet Paprika and one of Smoked Paprika
Then add a good glug of white wine, I am using dry vermouth, add a pack of Passata and cook down for a few minutes
Normally, I would add a cubed Potato to thicken, but as I am Low carbing I leave it out and just cook it down a little further.
I stir a large handful of Spinach into the mix.
When the tomato base is almost done, lay the cod fillets on the top, and poach till cooked through, I have added a handful of king Prawns too, just to bulk the protein levels.
I am having it as it comes
The men will have warm, crusty rolls with theirs – they smell amazing 🙃
