- 2 x 400g tins chopped tomatoes
- 200ml (7fl oz) passata (sieved tomatoes)

Heat a large pan and cook the chorizo until golden all over. Remove from the pan, leaving the oil. Turn the heat down low and add the onion to the pan, allowing to cook for 5 minutes until soft.
Add the garlic for a further minute, then add the oregano, tinned tomatoes, passata and stock and let it simmer for 20 minutes before adding the red wine vinegar and seasoning to taste.
Add the chorizo, beans, prawns and cod to the pan just before serving and cook for about 5 minutes or until the prawns have turned pink, then fold through the basil and serve in bowls with warm crusty bread.
This dish is so flexible – you could replace the beans with chickpeas and use hake instead of cod. A tasty addition is sun-blush tomatoes, which are semi-dried and very sweet, adding a new dimension of flavour – use 50g (2oz).
