Water for the Rice
Water for the Sauce
Pour the water for the rice (see ingredients for amount) into a large saucepan, add 0.25 tsp of salt and bring to the boil on medium heat. Meanwhile, roughly chop the coriander (stalks and all). Quarter the bok choy lengthways through the root. Zest and halve the lime.
Stir the stock powder into the boiling water until dissolved, then add the rice and half the coriander. Stir and bring to the boil. Cover with a lid, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 mins. When the rice has cooked for 10 mins, remove the lid, pop the sugarsnaps on top of the rice (don't stir) and quickly replace the lid. Remove the pan from the heat and leave for another 10 minutes. The rice will finish cooking in its own steam.
Meanwhile, mix the sweet chilli sauce, soy sauce, honey, sesame seeds and water (see ingredients for amount) together in a bowl. Squeeze in half the lime juice and stir together. Set aside.
Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat. Season the bream on each side with salt and pepper. When hot, lay the fish in your pan skin-side down and fry until golden brown, 3-4 mins. Tip: Don't move the fish during this time! Once golden, gently turn it over and cook for a further 2-3 mins. IMPORTANT: The fish is cooked when opaque in the middle. Once cooked, transfer the fish onto a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Keep the pan!
Return the now empty frying pan to medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil. When the pan is hot, add the bok choy (cut side down) and cook for 2-3 mins until starting to colour and soften slightly. Pour the sauce into the pan and simmer until slightly thickened, 2-3 more mins. Roll the bok choy around in the sauce to coat in all the delicious flavour!
Stir the sugarsnaps and lime zest through the rice. Spoon the rice into bowls and place the fish on top. Spoon the bok choy and sauce on the top and sprinkle over the remaining coriander. Enjoy!
