Method

  1. Toss the fish with the soy sauce, garlic and ginger. Heat the oil in a non-stick wok or frying pan and add the fish and its marinade. Sizzle for 3 mins on each side, until fish is almost cooked.
  2. Throw in the greens and a splash of water and let everything simmer for 5 mins, until the greens have wilted. Spoon everything onto a plate and serve with rice or noodles.

Very tasty and at the extreme end of easy! I used Pak Choi which only takes about three minutes in the pan so my fish also wasn't overdone. Got to be very careful balancing the combination of soy and ginger, though - easy to overdo it with soy.

Super easy to make and very tasty but it's important to remove the fish and then cook the spring greens, otherwise you either end up with uncooked greens or/and melted fish.

We made with samlon fillets, and the whole thing was very tasty. Quick to do though it's a good idea to leave the fish in its marinade for half an hour if possible.

I think you should take fish out of the pan before adding the greens...fish cooks too quick and some greens take longer than others...

My fish really fell apart and ended up mushy which was disappointing.

I made it with Quorn pieces, and added a pinch of Chinese 5 spice and chilli flakes. It was delicious. A great way to eat Spring Greens.
