METHOD

1. For the picada, grate the halved tomatoes, pressing the fleshy, cut face of the tomato against the grater. (As you grate each tomato half, the skin will flatten out and be left behind.) Discard the skin. 2. Heat the olive oil in a small frying pan over a medium heat. Add the garlic cloves and slice of bread and fry, turning over now and then, until golden-brown. Lift out with a slotted spoon and add to the bowl of a mini food processor with the almonds, tomato, parsley and one tablespoon of cold water. Blend to a paste and set aside. 3. For the cuttlefish and meatballs, grate the halved tomatoes, pressing the fleshy, cut face of the tomato against the grater. (As you grate each tomato half, the skin will flatten out and be left behind.) Discard the skin. 4. Put two tablespoons of the oil, half the garlic and the onion into a saucepan and fry for 10 minutes until soft, sweet and lightly golden. Add the wine, grated tomato and tomato purée and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 6–7 minutes until reduced and thickened. 5. For the meatballs, tear the bread into a small bowl, sprinkle with the milk and leave until soft. Break up the bread with your fingers and add the remaining chopped garlic, the parsley, chicken and pork mince, nutmeg and ½ teaspoon each of salt and black pepper. 6. Mix together well and shape into 2.5cm/1in wide balls. 7. Heat two tablespoons of the oil in a frying pan, add the meatballs and fry for 3-4 minutes, shaking the pan every now and then, until golden-brown. (You may need to do this in batches.) Set aside on a plate. Discard any oil left in the pan. 8. Heat another tablespoon of oil in the pan, add the prawns and fry for one minute on each side until just cooked through. Set aside on a plate. Add another tablespoon of oil to the pan, then the cuttlefish and stir-fry for two minutes or until it is nicely caramelized and just cooked through. Set aside with the prawns. 9. Add the tomato sauce to the pan, stir in the picada and simmer for two minutes. Reduce the heat to medium, stir in the stock or water and bring to the boil, stirring. Add the peas, meatballs and cuttlefish and season to taste with salt and pepper. Scatter over the prawns and simmer for five minutes until any remaining liquid has reduced and everything has heated through. 10. Serve with crusty fresh bread.
