I made this over the weekend and it was enjoyed immensely by all. Such a brilliant way of feeding a hungry table and so easy as it only uses one pan. We loved it with salmon, but this could easily be make with any white firm fish. Hake, cod, haddock or pollock would work beautifully. I realise that over the next few weeks people’s store cupboards will be depleted. Chorizo has a really long life and this recipe would still be delicious without the fish. If you get the chance add a pack to your next shop. I’ve said this on my stories, but if I can help at all with recipe suggestions, then please send me a message. Let me know which ingredients you have and I’ll help you with a recipe. Sending virtual hugs all round 😘
