A hearty, spicy stew that combines the subtle flavours of salmon and chickpea with salty, smoky chorizo.


  1. Prepare marinade (see ingredients), coat salmon chunks in it and refrigerate until required.

  2. In a medium pan, add 3 tbsp of oil, sauté the onions until soft. Add the chorizo, cook for about 5 minutes then add the garlic and smoked paprika.

  3. Add the chickpeas and tomatoes, add water to the empty can of tomatoes (about half full) and then add to the chickpea and tomato mix. Add the salt, sugar and pepper – then simmer for 10 minutes.

  4. In a small frying pan sauté the salmon chunks until nearly cooked. Add the kale, then the chickpea and tomato mix - stir until coated. Cover and cook for 5 minutes until the salmon and kale are cooked through.
