    Cook's tips

    You can replace the cod with any firm white fish such as haddock or pollack.

    Drinks recommendation

    The aromatic flavours of basil and lemongrass favour a crisp rosé that’s both elegant and full of flavour. Try Foncaussade Les Parcelles Rosé 2009 Bergerac, South of France.
