  1. Heat the oil in a flameproof casserole, tagine or deep frying pan set over a medium heat, add the onions and cook for 6-8 minutes until softened. Add the peppers and garlic and stir-fry for 2 minutes, then stir in the spices and cook for 2 minutes until fragrant.
  2. Stir in the passata, stock, agave syrup and vinegar. Season, then simmer for 15-20 minutes, until the sauce has reduced and thickened slightly. Stir most of the parsley and all the chickpeas into the tagine, then gently stir in the cod and prawns. Cook for 4-6 minutes, until the fish is just cooked through and flakes easily.
