This stew is cooked with basmati rice as a part of the sauce, but you can serve it with a crusty white, loaf of bread as well to make it even heartier. We suggest using haddock or cod below, but you can use any skinless, meaty, white fish you fancy.

Ready in just 25min, and cooked with coconut milk and pak choi, this nutritious meal makes for the perfect speedy, midweek meal.
