Suquet made with tomato paste: Method

  1. Preheat a small frying-pan over a medium heat.
  2. Add 2 tbsp of the oil, the garlic, almonds, a pinch of salt and cook stirring constantly to caramelise lightly then remove to a pestle and mortar and set aside to cool. Pound to a rough breadcrumb texture and add the parsley then set aside.
  3. Heat a large, deep saucepan over a medium/high heat and add the remaining olive oil, onion and a good pinch of salt. Cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes until translucent but no colour.
  4. Add the Mutti tomato paste, paprika, bay leaf and potato, stir through and continue to cook for 2 minutes longer. Add the wine, saffron and cook for 2 minutes then add the Mutti Polpa, stock and simmer for 10 minutes until potatoes are almost cooked.
  5. Add the fish and cook gently for 2 minutes then the squid, prawns and mussels. Cover and cook for 5 minutes then serve topped with the almonds.
