1
Soak the chickpeas in lots of cold water for a minimum of 6 hours before you intend to cook them. Overnight is best
2
Heat the oil for the stew in a saucepan and lightly fry the chopped garlic, onion and carrots. When the vegetables are nicely golden, slice the chorizo and add to the pan. Sauté until brown all over
3
Add the stock and the bay leaf. Bring to the boil, add the chickpeas and the potatoes and cook for about 1 hour, nibbling occasionally to see if the chickpeas and potatoes are cooked. Skim off any foam or chorizo fat that comes to the surface during cooking
4
Once the chickpeas are soft but not mushy, season to taste. Add a little boiling water if you would like a more soupy consistency
5
To cook the fish, heat the oil in a heavy-based frying pan over a medium heat. Once the pan is hot, season the skin with a little salt and pan-roast the skin-side down until golden and crisp. This will take 2–3 minutes
  • salt
  • 4 Skrei cod fillets, each weighing 200g, skin-on
  • olive oil, for pan-frying and finishing
6
Gently turn the fillets over and continue to cook for another 2–3 minutes until the flesh turns white and starts to firm up. Remove from the heat and allow to rest and cook through a little further for 2 more minutes until the centre is almost cooked
7
Divide the stew between four bowls, drizzle a little olive oil over the top and scatter on some parsley if you have any
