  4. Add zucchini, carrot, capsicum, asparagus, and snow peas and stir-fry for 30 seconds.
  5. Add coconut milk and fish stock and bring to the boil and cook for 5 minutes. Add fish and simmer, for 3-5 minutes or until fish is cooked through and vegetables are tender.
  6. Allow to cool. Freeze in an airtight container. 
  7. Once reheated, garnish with a lime wedge and fresh coriander before serving.
Tips:
  • Chicken or tofu is also a great alternative to fish.
