Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Creamy One-Pot Fish Florentine With Basil

Boil a kettle

Peel and finely chop the brown onion[s]

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

2 Creamy One-Pot Fish Florentine With Basil

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick, with a matching lid) with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium heat

Once hot, add the chopped onion and cook for 5 min or until softened

Once softened, add the chopped garlic and cook for 1 min further

3  Creamy One-Pot Fish Florentine With Basil

Meanwhile, dissolve 1/2 [1] Knorr vegetable stock cube in 500ml [950ml] boiled water – this is your vegetable stock

Add the vegetable stock to the pan with the softened onion

4 Creamy One-Pot Fish Florentine With Basil

Add the soft cheese and orzo to the pan and give everything a good mix up until fully combined

Cook for 5 min on a medium heat

Tip: Stir occasionally to stop the orzo sticking to the pan!

5 Creamy One-Pot Fish Florentine With Basil

Meanwhile, cut the cherry tomatoes in half

Wash the baby leaf spinach, then chop it roughly

Tear the basil leaves

Grate the cheddar cheese

6 Creamy One-Pot Fish Florentine With Basil

Add the chopped spinach and tomatoes to the orzo with half the basil leaves (save the rest for later!) and cook until the spinach has wilted

Give everything a good mix up – this is your orzo mix

7 Creamy One-Pot Fish Florentine With Basil

Meanwhile, season the basa fillets with a pinch of salt and pepper

Lay the basa fillets over the orzo mix, top with the grated cheese and cook, covered, for 5 min or until the basa is cooked through – this is your one-pot fish florentine

Tip: Your fish is cooked when it turns opaque and flakes easily!
