I spent a rainy Bank Holiday weekend catching up on shopping and menu planning for the week. I find this makes it much easier to track the points that I'm eating. I had this lovely fish stew one evening last week and it was quick and easy to make, delicious and proves that healthy food doesn't have to be boring. Weigh in tonight!
Fisherman's Stew (adapted from WeightWatchers The Complete Kitchen)

175g new potatoes, sliced 5mm thick
200g frozen seafood, defrosted

Pare three strips of zest from the orange using a vegetable peeler, and squeeze out the juice. Add the saffron to the orange juice and leave to soak.
Heat a large lidded saucepan over a medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Add the pepper and garlic and stir fry for 3 mins.
Add the saffron and orange juice, the cherry tomatoes, caster sugar, stock and new potatoes, plus the pared orange zest. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 20 mins or until the potatoes are tender.
Add the seafood mix and simmer for 5-8 mins or until the seafood is piping hot.
Ladle into bowls to serve.
