For the Masterstock:
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup Stock Merchant's Sustainable Crab Stock or vegetable or fish stock
- 2 tbsp tamari
- 2 tbsp fish sauce
- 2 tsp ground ginger
- 1 tsp Chinese five spice
- 1 tsp brown sugar
For the Steamed Greens:
- 4 broccolini stems
- 8 snow peas trimmed
- a handful of green beans trimmed
For the Poached Fish:
- 2 Barramundi fillets skin off - try to find a thicker cut, not tail cut, 150g / 5oz
- a few coriander leaves
- chilli flakes optional
In the meantime, prepare your Greens for steaming:
To Poach the Fish and Steam your Greens:
Once the stock has come up to the boil, reduce heat to a simmer and gently place barramundi fillets in the stock.
Place greens in a steamer basket and place on top of the pan. Cover with a lid and allow both to cook for about 8 minutes.
Divide steamed greens between serving bowls. Gently lift the fish out of the stock and place on top of the greens - the fish will be very tender, you might need a long spatula to do this.
Pour stock over the dish and dress with some coriander leaves. (Spirnkle with chilli, if using). Serve warm.
