    • Total time: 35 minutes 35 minutes

    Serves: 4

    • 1 large potato, diced
    • 4 cloves garlic, sliced
    • 400g Waitrose Seafood Cocktail, drained
    • Juice of ½ lime
    • 1 pack fresh flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped

    Cook's tips

    For a really fragrant stock, prepare it to the end of Step 1 up to two days in advance to allow all the flavours to infuse. Cool and chill, then bring to the simmer and cook from Step 2.

    As an alternative to seafood cocktail, use raw king or tiger prawns. Cook them 1-2 minutes longer until pink and piping hot.
