Servings 2 people


  • 1 Broccoli
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 200 g Jasmine Rice
  • 1 tbsp Ginger ground
  • 1 clove Garlic minced
  • 1 Lemon sliced into wheels
  • 2 Cod Fillets boneless
  • 1 glass White Wine
  • 1 tbsp Parsley


  • Preheat the oven to 200ºC. Cut your broccoli into florets and add to your baking tray. (Check the Ingredients to see what sort of baking tray I used to roast my broccoli).
  • Cook the rice in slightly salted, boiling water until cooked and then drain.
  • In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of olive oil, ginger, garlic, lemon wheels, and salt; and then set aside.
  • In a wok or large frying pan, heat 2 tbsp of olive oil over medium-high heat. Season cod generously with salt. When oil is almost smoking, add fish and sear for 5 minutes and then remove from pan.
  • Add ginger-lemon mixture to the pan and sauté sauce for 3 minutes, until the lemon wheels have become brown. Add white wine and parsley until a sauce begins to form. 
  • Add rice and cod to the plate. Pour over your sauce and lemon wheels, then scatter roasted broccoli on top. Garnish with some extra parsley.
