  1. Heat the oil in a large, heavy- based pan over a medium heat. Add the onion, celery, garlic, leeks and thyme; fry for 5-7 mins until the vegetables are soft.
  2. Add the potatoes, lemon juice and zest, and the stock. Simmer for 20-25 mins until the liquid has reduced by a third and the potatoes are tender.
  3. Meanwhile, heat a frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the salami and fry for 1 min each side: the colour will darken and the salami will become crispy. Remove and set aside on a plate.
  4. Stir the peas into the stew, bring to the boil, then simmer for 3 mins. Remove the pan from the heat and sprinkle over the parsley; season. To serve, ladle into bowls and tear over the salami.
