Peal and prepare all the vegetables by slicing into Julienne (cut into small stripes or small, match-like pieces: you can use a mandolin for this).Very quickly, in a medium sized pan, put the butter down, then the vegetables and place the fish on top. Pour in the fish stock, cover and cook on a low heat for 6-8 minutes or until the fish is cooked.Plate the fish, finish the coriander and squeeze the lime of the fish just before you serve.
