Portuguese Fish Pasta Step By Step

  1. You have to make the fish stock first, you can make it 24 hours in advance and set in fridge until needed or freeze it for longer.
  2. In a pot add the water, the prawns, a few dried chili's and a few onion skins. Bring to the boil and cook until the prawns have turned pink normally 4-5 at the most. Take of the heat and remove the prawns from the pot set aside. Remove the onion peels and discard.
  3. When the prawns have cooled down enough to handle. Peel the skin and heads and add all the discarded prawn peel, heads and chili's into a blitzer with half of the water. Blitz together very well. Set aside the now peeled prawns and the fish liquid to add to the pasta later.

  6. Add the stock cube and continue to simmer for another few minutes, then add the fish water and bring to boiling point.
  7. Add the pasta, add more water if required to reach just about half way of the pot and continue to cook for a further 8-10 minutes.
  8. Then add the fish pieces and clams, and continue to cook for another 5-8 minutes.
