Chilli Chicken Soup

It’s cold season, people are coughing and sniffling in office blocks nationwide. It’s gross. Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been victim to the pathetic symptoms of the common cold and attempting to self cure with ginger tea and hot honey and lemon; which by the way are both awesome things to be drinking when you’re all bunged up.

Plus, the flavours in this little tin will blow your socks off – if you can get your hands on some, do. If you’re not a fan of spicy food (I’m talking to you Grandad) then this recipe is not for you, however if the very title of this recipe had you interested (I’m talking to you chilli geeks) then please, read on. Serves 2 2 fillets of white fish (I used river cobbler, cheap/cheerful/sustainable) 200g fine green beans (remember to top …
