  1. Place a saucepan over a medium heat and add two tablespoons of olive oil. Stir in the chopped celery, shallots, and garlic. Leave to simmer for about three minutes. Then stir in the chopped tomatoes and white wine – allow to simmer for about five minutes. Next stir in the fish stock, olives and sorrel. Reduce the heat to low, season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and simmer for 20 minutes.
