1. Rinse the fish and set aside.
2. Crumble the stock cube into a deep frying pan or wok and stir in 500ml boiling water to dissolve the stock cube. Warm the stock with the turmeric, ginger, cardamom, star anise and black pepper. Simmer fo 10 mins.
3. Strain the stock through a sieve into a jug or bowl, discarding the spices. Pour the stock back into the pan. Add the coconut oil and lower the fish into the pan.
4. Simmer 10 mins or till the fish is cooked through – the fish will flake easily when it’s done. Test by gently inserting the tip of a knife in the fattest part of the fish.
5. Serve the fish on a bed of rice or noodles with seasonal greens and a ladle of the broth.

This is a WONDERFUL recipe; quite delicate but utterly delicious. We pop on a bed of noodles and wilted spinach or baby spinach,. We don't bother with the coconut oil or straining the spices- they look nice and the braised turmeric and ginger are both great to munch if wished.??
