  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 3 cm piece of fresh ginger peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 red chilli deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1.5 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 stick lemongrass bashed with a wooden spoon to release the flavour
  • 400 ml coconut milk
  • 300 g skinless and boneless cod loin cut into 2 cm cubes
  • 100 g mange tout sliced
  • 150 g broccoli florets
  • To serve: fresh coriander and red chilli sliced


  • Place the garlic, ginger, red chilli, turmeric, lemongrass and coconut milk in the slow cooker.
  • Add the cubes of cod, mange tout and broccoli.
  • Cook on low for 2-3 hours or until the cod is cooked through (check that it flakes easily and has turned from translucent to opaque). 
  • Top with chopped fresh coriander and slices of red chilli.


Note: I made this in a large 5.7 litre slow cooker but it would also work well in a smaller slow cooker e.g. 3.5 litre. Cooking time will vary according to your slow cooker and its size. In my large slow cooker this was done after 1 hour and 45 minutes. Check the fish as mentioned above to ensure it is cooked.
