Fish Bolognese

Pin It Now!

Spaghetti Bolognese is a real classic pasta dish and I am a huge fan of spaghetti bolognese too, the idea of making "Fish Bolognese" was given to me by my brother living in Belgium, so I decided to give it a go, and it turned out quite delicious, I didn’t follow any particular recipe, just followed the same bolognaise sauce I  normally make....

Fish Bolognese


 200 gm pasta
250 gm fish fillets cut in to one inch chunks (you can use canned tuna as well)
1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes with juice
2 tbsp tomato ketchup
1 cup water or chicken broth
¼ teaspoons oregano
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
½ tsp crushed black pepper
3 tbsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 medium capsicum chopped
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 teaspoon sea salt
Grated cheddar or parmesan cheese (optional)


Heat oil in a pan and add in the onions and garlic, fry till onions get translucent, add in the mushrooms and capsicum and fry for a couple of minutes. Add tomatoes, ketchup, oregano, salt, pepper, and red chili flakes  and simmer over low hear for about 20 minutes; add the fish chunks to the sauce (or just drain and add the tuna if using tuna can). Bring back to a simmer and continue simmering until the fish is just done, break the fish into small pieces with a spoon. Mean while cook the pasta according to packet instruction. Add the drained pasta and toss with the sauce, serve it hot (topped with grated cheese if you like).
