Haddock with chorizo, peppers and potatoes

You may remember a few weeks back I wrote about the hamper of foody goodies I won from Unearthed, in amongst the feta, salami and olives was a little tray of mini chorizo sausages which were just crying out to be turned into a dish that was vibrant, colourful and summery. So that's what I did.Foodycat suggested I try pairing the chorizo with squid which sounds like a wonderful combination, unfortunately I didn't have any squid but I did have some Haddock fillets so in keeping with the seafood idea I used those instead.

I've mentioned before how much I like one-pot recipes and this is another on of those, it's a quick and easy recipe that gives fantastic results.
  • First I fried the little chorizos until their deep red paprika infused oil began to fill the pan then I added chopped new potatoes, tossed them in the oil and left it to sizzle for a few minutes with the lid on.
  • While the potatoes and chorizo were cooking I chopped some red and yellow peppers and crushed some garlic, I added these to the pan along with a generous splash of sherry and covered it again for five minutes more.
  • When the peppers had softened I added a handful of cherry tomatoes, laid the haddock fillets on top and covered the pan once more.
  • Five minutes later it's done! serve with the cooking liquid spooned over the top and some good crusty bread to mop it up.

Wow that looks delicious. I wouldn't have thought of the sea-food pairing but it looks good. Actually I think I would eat almost ANYTHING with chorizo, peppers and potatoes ;-)

That's such a great combo, Sam! And with that lovely Spanish feel...

Works really well with morcilla, too, if you ever want to try ringing the changes...

There is pretty much nothing better than a good one-pot meal, I totally agree. And I LOVE chorizo. Your recipe looks wonderful!
