1
Place a heavy-based pan over a medium-high heat and add oil. Once the oil is hot, add the sugar and onions, leave to caramelise - approximately 20/25 minutes - and then deglaze with white wine
  • vegetable oil
  • 2 onions, finely sliced
  • 200g of muscovado sugar
  • 375ml of white wine
2
In a separate pan, fry the sliced button mushrooms in a little vegetable oil until slightly coloured then drain off the excess liquid
  • vegetable oil
  • 2kg button mushrooms
3
Return the mushrooms to the pan along with the onions, then add the chicken stock and simmer for 2 hours. Strain off and cool in a fridge overnight
  • 3.4l chicken stock

To make the raft and finish the broth, blend the lemon grass, coriander, mushrooms and ginger in a blender then add the egg white
  • 1 bunch of coriander stalks
  • 3 lemon grass stalks
  • 20g of ginger
  • 250g of egg white
  • 200g of button mushrooms

Remove the mushroom stock from the fridge and skim off any fat that has set on top. Pour the stock into a pan and whisk the raft mixture into the stock
6
On a gentle heat, bring the stock and raft up to a gentle simmer and cook very slowly for 1 hour. Remove from the heat and strain the clear stock - pushing it through muslin cloth with a ladle. Season with a little soy sauce and fish sauce to taste
  • 1 dash of fish sauce
  • 1 dash of soy sauce
  • olive oil

Place each piece of cod into a vacuum bag, add a drop of olive oil and seal. Cook in a water bath at 56°C for 15 minutes

For the tomato concasse, blanch, peel and remove the seeds of the tomatoes. Dice the flesh into 1cm squares and set aside

Bring the Asian broth to the boil and add the shiitake mushrooms, shimeji mushrooms and tomato concasse
  • 150g of shimeji mushrooms

Arrange the spinach and samphire onto plates with the mushrooms. Pour over some broth, leaving half for the next step. Remove the cod from the bags

Peel off the skin and season with sea salt. Use a microplane to grate the zest of the kaffir lime over the top of the fish. Serve the cod on top of the spinach and pour over the remaining broth. Garnish with some coriander cress and serve immediately
