360g monk fish
1 carrot
150g green beans
1 red capsicum
1 tinned chickpeas
1 long red chilli
3 cloves of garlic
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon sweet paprika
1 large natural vegetable stock cube
1 lemon
(olive oil, butter, salt & pepper not included)

Prepare fish & vegetables
Fill kettle with water and boil. Cut the fish into approximately 3cm sized pieces. Peel carrots, half-length ways and cut into 1cm thick half moons. Top and tail the beans and cut them in half. De-seed capsicum and cut it into strips the same size as the cut beans. De-seed chilli and finely chop. Roughly chop garlic and coriander. Rinse and drain the chickpeas. Dissolve stock cube in 250ml of boiling water. Once dissolved, mix in turmeric and paprika, then set aside.

Cook tagine
In a large saucepan with a tight fitting lid, place vegetables, chickpeas, chilli and garlic. Then place fish pieces on top. Add half of the coriander, salt, pepper and a generous drizzle of olive oil. Pour over stock and spice mix. Place saucepan on a medium heat, cover and cook for 20 minutes. Do not stir and resist lifting the lid until time is up. Remove lid and cook for a further 5 minutes.

To serve
Place monkfish in bowls and sprinkle with remaining coriander. Finish with a generous squeeze of lemon and seasoning to taste.
