Spring may be just around the corner, but for us in the UK, it is still feeling rather Wintery! This is a lovely hearty stew from Madeline Shaw which is really nourishing for your skin. The Selenium and vitamin E in the cod can work wonders on your skin, and help prevent premature aging.


  1. To a heavy-bottomed pan on a medium heat add the olive oil and garlic and fry for a minute.

  2. Next, add the tomatoes and cook for a few mins then add the chickpeas, smoked paprika, and olives, stir well then add the stock.

  3. Simmer for 10 mins then add the cod, cover the pan and cook for a further 10 minutes.

  4. Plate the stew and sprinkle with fresh black pepper and some greens.
