This recipe was borne out of having a lot of random ingredients and no recipe to use them for.

I love random food combinations, so this was an interesting one to make and eat.

I hope you like it.

Did you know?

  • Basa is a member of the catfish family, and is also known as river cobbler.
  • The goji berry, or wolfberry, is a member of the nightshade family!

In less than an hour you can have a deliciously zingy seafood stir fry, and it's also super healthy! Using spicy broad beans provides a crunchy and tasty alternative to croutons, and the goji berries add an interesting fruity twist without overpowering the dish.

The great thing about this recipe is that it will work with almost any fish. I made it with basa for the man of the house and whiting for me, but if neither of those fishes are to your taste why not try:

  • Sea bass
  • Sea bream
  • Monkfish tail
  • Plaice
  • Lemon sole
