  • Squeeze one half of the lime juice into the rice and then add the lime to the pot to add lots of flavors!
  • Whilst the rice is cooking boil a kettle and heat a pan with a drizzle of oil.
  • Slice the spring onions finely, chop or grate the garlic, half the tomatoes and cut the peppers into thin strips.
  • Add your veg to the pan (leave some spring onions for the end) and cook on medium heat for around five mins.
  • Chop your coconut cream and dissolve it In a jug with 300ml boiling water, the veg stock cube, chipotle paste, sugar and the remaining juice of the halved lime.
  • Chop up your coriander leaving some leaves whole and add half to the pan.
  • Add your coconut stock and cook for 3 mins or until the sauce has thickened.
  • Add in your chilli flakes and some chopped fresh chilli.
  • Once thickened add the haddock and cook for around 5 mins.
