Basa + Cashew Stir Fry

When I had no idea how to cook, I relied on throwing things into a pan with a splash of oil. A classic stir fry is a super simple, 1-pan situation that is convenient after a long day or week – no chef skills required. Minimal prep and cooking time, throw this together when you need something tasty in a flash!





  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 130g basa fillet
  • ¼ cup cashews
  • 2 bok choi, leaves separated
  • ½ lemon
  • ½ tbsp tamari or soy sauce
  • black sesame seeds, to garnish
  • ½ fresh red chilli, sliced


  1. In a frying pan or wok over a medium heat, add 1 tsp of the sesame oil and add the fish, cooking for 5-8 minutes until cooked through.
  2. Remove the fish from the pan and set aside.
  3. Now add the remaining oil bok choi, red chilli and cashews.
  4. Sautee for 3-5 minutes, until the greens have started to wilt but are still firm.
  5. Squeeze over the lemon juice and soy sauce, then toss and remove from the heat.
  6. Add the greens to a bowl and top with the fish.
  7. Finish with a sprinkle of black sesame seeds and fresh chilli
