In this speedy Mexican dish you'll grind fresh coriander to a paste and stir it through cooked basmati rice to make a flavour-packed, vividly coloured 'green rice'. Fiery chipotle fish sits on top, with a cooling lime, grated cucumber & tomato salsa on the side! (Gluten and dairy-free, suitable for coeliacs).
