Yuzu cod

Japanese broth

To garnish

  • 1 handful of wasabi shoots, or use any micro cress available
  • 1 chilli, deseeded and sliced


  • Steamer


In a bowl, mix the sesame oil, yuzu juice and a pinch of salt to taste. Add the cod to the mixture, ensuring it is well-coated, cover the bowl and leave in the fridge for 30 minutes
Place the cod in a steamer and cook for 12–15 minutes, until cooked through and just starting to flake
Meanwhile, place the sliced chilli in a hot, dry pan and fry for around 2 minutes. Place the dashi in a pan with the light soy sauce and fried chilli and simmer for 10 minutes
Add the fresh peas and mushrooms and cook for a further 2 minutes on low heat
Decant the mushrooms, peas and broth evenly between bowls and place the steamed cod on top. Sprinkle with the cress and chilli and serve immediately
