This is a delicious Mediterranean-inspired one-pot rice dish. Use the fennel as an optional flavour. You can use any meaty white fish for this recipe, such as monkfish, swordfish, halibut or cod fillet.

Heat the olive oil in a pan on a gentle heat. Add the onion and cook for 5–7 minutes until golden, soft and translucent. Add the celery and fennel, if using, and stir for 1 minute. Add the chopped garlic and cook for a further minute. Pour in the wine, allowing it to bubble and simmer for 1–2 minutes
Add the rice and stir until coated all over. Pour in the chopped tomatoes, add 125ml of water and stir. Add the monkfish fillets. Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper, then cover and simmer on a very low heat for 10 minutes
Check the rice – it should be cooked but retaining some bite. If the rice is beginning to look dry, add another 125ml of water. The consistency should be quite soupy. Add the whole prawns to the pan, stir gently and cover. Simmer again for a further 5 minutes, until the prawns are pink
Sprinkle the stew with fresh parsley and serve immediately
