Ingredients (for 2 people) :
-1 tablespoon light olive oilMethod: Take the white fish fillets out of the freezer and allow to slightly defrost until you can cut them into bite-sized chunks.
-1 leek, washed, most of the dark green leaves removed and white part very finely sliced
-1 stick celery, trimmed, peeled and very finely sliced
-650ml homemade or bought fish stock
-6 teaspoons fish sauce (nam plah)
-6 tablespoons frozen pea and bean mix (peas, broad beans and green beans)
-1 large or 2 small frozen white fish fillets (haddock, cod etc)
-1 small bag frozen ‘fruit de mer’ mix
-Freshly ground white pepper
Meanwhile, warm the oil in a soup pot and very gently saute the leeks and celery until tender but still with a slight ‘bite’ (don’t let them brown).
Add the fish stock, bring to the boil, reduce the heat, add the fish sauce and simmer for 5 minutes.
Add the pea/bean mix and continue to simmer until they are all tender (around 4 - 5 minutes).
Add the frozen white fish chunks and the ‘fruit de mer’ mix (2 scallops, 2 mussels, 2 prawns and 2 pieces squid per person).
Simmer gently in the broth until all the fish is cooked (around 8 - 10 minutes).
Before serving, check the seasoning, adding a little white pepper and another splash of fish sauce if required.
