Method

  • To make the sauce, combine the coconut milk, fish sauce, lime juice, soy sauce, chilli flakes and honey in a bowl. Adjust these flavours to suit your taste, adding more lime juice if too sweet or salty.

  • Place the rice in a large saucepan of cold salted water and bring to the boil. Simmer gently until cooked then add the cauliflower. Cook for 2 minutes before draining.

  • Warm a wok or large frying pan over medium / high heat. Add the coconut oil followed by the onion, garlic, ginger, and chilli. Stir fry for 1-2 minutes, then add the carrot and mushrooms. Also add a quarter of the sauce. Continue stir frying for 2-3 minutes.

  • Add the fish, broccoli, red pepper and beansprouts plus up to half of remaining stir fry sauce.

  • Simmer fish and vegetables in the sauce for up to 5 minutes, until the fish is cooked. Add more of the stir fry sauce as needed, enough to just cover vegetables in sauce. Simmer for 2 minutes.

  • Remove from heat and serve on a bed of rice.
