1 to 2 zucchini, 1cm thick slices
½ red capsicum, 1cm cubes
2 sticks of celery, sliced 
¼ pumpkin, peeled if you prefer and cut into roughly 1cm cubes
½ to 1/3 cauliflower, broken into florets

500 grams ling or other white fish in season, cubed
4 prawns (peeled) per person 
Juice of 1 lime

Put the olive oil into a thick based pot
When the pot is warm, add the onion and gently sautee till brown
Add the celery and fry for a minute or two
