Fishy Fusion

It's January, everybody is on a diet, detoxing, de this and de that. Then we have the credit card bill for xmas to pay for. What we need is cheap, tasty and healthy food. This dish I just threw together after finding some cheap white fish in the supermarket. It's called River Cobbler from Viet Nam and at £2 a pack which provides two large fillets I thought I'd try it. It's similar to cod but maybe a bit meatier. To inject some flavour and keep it healthy I decided to steam it and serve with a noodle and veg stir fry. For two people it equates to about £2.50 a head.

Ingredients : 2 fillets of white fish i.e. river cobbler, sole. Small piece of ginger cut into juliennes, lime, fresh noodles, packet of Chinese veg, 1tbs soy sauce, 2tbs oyster sauce, 1 tbs veg oil

1. Cut the fillets in half length ways and roll up. Secure with a cocktail stick.
2. Place into a steamer and top with the ginger and a slice of lime.
3. Steam for about 8-10 minutes until fish is cooked.
3. Fry off veg / noodles in hot oil. Add soy / oyster sauce and a splash of water.
4. To serve, place noodles in centre of plate, top with fish and a drizzle of soy sauce.
