AT A GLANCE
This is a version of the simple fishermen's classic where fish or seafood is poached in "crazy water", so-called because the colour of the poaching liquid reminded them of peasants' homemade wine.
|01||Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add garlic and fry until starting to soften (1-2 minutes). Add chilli, stir to combine, then add tomatoes, wine and 150ml water. Bring to the simmer, add fish and season to taste. Cover and simmer until just cooked through (15-20 minutes).|
|02||Add clams, stir to combine, cover and cook until clams open (2-3 minutes). Season to taste, drizzle with extra olive oil, scatter with parsley and serve hot with bread.|
