A firm, meaty white fish like hake paired with smoky chorizo and smooth butter beans is a tried and tested combination that always tastes delicious. This easy dinner feels like a real treat on a weeknight for the whole family to enjoy. — Jon Cleave


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 100 g choriz


Heat the olive oil in a casserole dish, then add the chopped onion and sliced chorizo. Cook gently until the pan is nice and sticky and the onion has reddened.

Add the crushed garlic and after a couple of minutes stir in the paprika. Pour in the white wine, tinned tomatoes, butter beans and sliced black olives. Give everything a good stir, then let it bubble away for 10 minutes or so on
