2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep fish, veggies

Slice fish into 1-inch pieces and season with salt and pepper on both sides. Peel and thinly slice shallots. Split red chile in half. Rinse tomato, core and roughly chop. Rinse bok choy and slice into 1-inch pieces. Rinse scallions, cut off root and thinly slice. Rinse and roughly chop cilantro and basil.


Sauté aromatics, simmer stew

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in pan on medium heat until shimmering. Add shallots and a pinch of salt and sauté until just soft, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in ginger-garlic paste and enough chile to your spice preference and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add tomato, bok choy and half of scallions, cilantro and basil, reserving the rest of each herb for garnish. Add 2 cups water and coconut miso sauce. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook until bok choy starts to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Carefully add fish and cook until it’s flakey and opaque, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove pan from heat.

Season, serve

Season stew with ½ of lime juice and salt to taste. Divide stew evenly between two bowls and garnish with remaining herbs. Serve with remaining wedges of lime.
