  • 6 garlic cloves, sliced

  • 2 tsp paprika

  • 70g/3oz chorizo, cut into cubes

Preparation method

  1. Heat the olive oil in a terracotta cazuela or a shallow flameproof casserole.

  2. Add the onions and garlic and cook gently until soft.

  3. Add the paprika and fry for 2-3 minutes, then add the chorizo sausage and green peppers and fry for another 3-4 minutes.

  4. Stir in the potatoes, then pour in the wine and water, season with some salt and pepper and simmer for about 10 minutes, until the potatoes are just tender and the liquid has reduced a little.

  5. Season the hake steaks well on both sides. Put them on top of the potatoes, cover and simmer for 8-10 minutes, until the hake is cooked through.
