Ready In:


  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • 75 g green beans, trimmed and cut into pieces
  • 4 spring onions, sliced
  • 1 red chile, trimmed and sliced
  • 125 g baby corn, halved
  • 1 garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper
  • 200 g wide rice noodles
  • 75 g Baby Spinach, shredded
  • 1 bunch coriander, coarsely chopped
  • 2 cod fish fillets
  • flour, for dusting
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 lime


  • Dissolve the stock cube in 600ml boiling water in a medium sized saucepan.
  • Place the pan over a medium heat and bring to a boil.
  • Add the beans, corn and chilli, return to the boil and cook for one minute.
  • Now add the leeks and garlic.
  • Return to a boil and remove immediately from the heat.
  • Add the noodles, shredded spinach and a couple good tablespoonsful of coriander.
  • Stir until everything is immersed, then cover and leave for five minutes.
  • Meanwhile, cook the fish.
  • Pat it dry to absorb any excess water, then dust both sides with flour and shake to remove any extra.
  • Over a medium heat, warm the oil in a frying pan and fry the fish.
  • Turn after about three minutes, depending on how thick the fillets are, to cook the other side.
  • Turn off the heat and leave the cod in the pan while you scoop the noodles and remaining liquid into two bowls.
  • Top each with a fillet of fish, scatter over the remaining coriander and serve with a lime wedge.

This is a picture of me and my husband in Portugal, climbing up above the clouds with our bikes. Right now we are travelling around the world on our bicycles, so I only pop onto Zaar occasionally, when internet connections and time allow me to. If I don't reply to a message about one of my recipes, now you know why! Our trip may take several years so if it's urgent, it's probably better for you to post in the forums ;) Good food is really important to me -- I am happy to pay extra for food that I feel is produced in a sustainable and ethical way and always try to eat using seasonal produce. When we were in the UK we rarely shopped at supermarkets, trying instead to favour small producers, although we were very lucky in that we lived in London and there was lots of choice. We also were fortunate enough to have a weekly organic veg box delivered to our door, filled with so many lovely vegetables for very little money. It really opened my horizons in terms of the variety of vegetables I eat. If you're in the UK, check out Riverford for a box supplier as they're amazing! When I'm not eating I love to take pictures and travel with my husband. <img src="">
