Spicy Tomato & Peppers Fish

This is a spicy dish but you can modify and make it much milder according to your own taste.

If you need a kick, this is definetely the dish for you; if you do not like it spicy just do not use any chilli and you will have still a very nice dish with a more delicate taste.


Serves: 6

Preparation: 20 minutes

Cooking: 40 minutes.


  • 6 skinless white fish fillets

  • 400gr chickpeas - rinsed and drained

  • 3-4 red/yellow peppers deseeded and cut into stripe
