If you want to use a slow cooker...
Leave this stew to infuse for longer. Whizz the parsley stalks, half the leaves, oil and seasoning in a food processor. Add this to the onions, celery, paprika, peppers and tomatoes in the slow cooker pot. Cook on Low for 8-10 hours. Nestle the mussels in the sauce and scatter the fish on top. Re-cover and cook on High for 30 mins-1 hour. Discard any unopened mussels, stir the fish into the sauce then serve.


  1. Heat the oil in a pan, then add the onions, celery and a little salt. Cover, then gently fry until soft, about 10 mins. Put the parsley stalks, half the leaves, oil and seasoning into a food processor and whizz to a paste. Add this and the paprika to the softened onions, frying for a few mins. Tip in the peppers and tomatoes with a splash of water, then simmer for 10 mins until the sauce has reduced.

  2. Lay the fish and mussels on top of the sauce, put a lid on, then simmer for 5 mins until the fish is just flaking and the mussels have opened – discard any that stay shut. Gently stir the seafood into the sauce, season, then serve in bowls.
