Be careful not to overcook this soup – keep the vegetables on the crunchy side to retain their vibrant colour and nutrients.
Step by Step Instructions
- 250 grams fresh egg noodles (or gluten-free noodles)
- 2 tsp sesame oil
- 1 tbsp sesame seeds
- Coconut oil
- 2 cloves garlic, peeled & finely sliced
- 6 cm fresh ginger, peeled & finely sliced
- 2 fresh red chillies, finely sliced
- 100 grams mangetout
- ½ red or yellow bell pepper, sliced
- 1 litre hot fish, vegetable or chicken stock
- 600 grams white fish, skinned & cut into chunks
- Soy sauce (or g/f tamari or coconut aminos)
- Juice of 2 limes
- Large bunch of fresh coriander, leaves only
Cook the noodles in boiling water according to pack instructions, then drain and toss in a little sesame oil before dividing between four serving bowls. Sprinkle each bowl with a generous pinch of sesame seeds.
Heat a large frying pan or wok over a medium heat and add a tablespoon of coconut oil. Stir fry the garlic, ginger and chillies for a few minutes, until softened and then add the mangetout and bell pepper for a further minute.
Add the hot stock and bring to the boil. Drop in the fish pieces, cook for a minute, then turn off the heat and season with soy sauce and freshly ground black pepper.
Spoon the broth over the noodles, then drizzle each bowl with the juice of half a lime and add a generous handful of coriander leaves.
