Halászlé Hungarian Paprika Fishermans Stew

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 🙃

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
