Cod, chorizo and butterbean stew - 278 calories

Pineapple274 stone

Serves 3

Oil, Olive, Average-5ml

Sausage, Chorizo -50g

Red Peppers, Raw -1 Med/160g

Onions -½ Med/90g

400g can of Chopped Tomatoes

Tomato Puree, Average-35g

Butter Beans, Canned (drained) -1 Can/250g

Paprika -¼ Tsp/0.5g

Cod, Loins -240g

Fresh Parsley -1 Tbsp/3.8g


Peel and finely dice the onion. De-seed the pepper and cut into large chunks. Cut the cod loin into 3cm chunks. Cut the chorizo into chunky slices and remove skin (if present).


In a deep pan over a low to medium heat, sweat the chorizo to release the oil. Add the onion, olive oil and red pepper and cook for five minutes, being careful not to brown.

Add the tomatoes, tomato puree, paprika and butterbeans. Simmer and reduce for about ten minutes.

Add the cod, salt and freshly ground black pepper and pop the lid on. Simmer for another 8 - 10 minutes or so, stirring a couple of times (very gently or your fish will fall apart!), until the fish is cooked through.

Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately.

I had mine with stir fried leek, savoy cabbage and peas (77 cals) and tenderstem broccoli (14 cals).

Total for meal: 369 calories

Dessert: Half an orange (27 calories)

Wow, this is soooo colourful - looks delicious! :-) xx


Looks yummy!!! Thanks!!!


My sort of food Pineapple27 thanks for posting. I buy chorizo regularly now too, great for adding flavour.


That sounds lovely and I have everything in apart from chorizo. I'm about to plan my evening meals for the week ahead so this is going to feature (I'll have to scale it down for 1, or maybe 2 and have it two days)

We always freeze extra portions. This was supposed to serve two, but that was way too much so the one extra portion went into the freezer!
