Broccoli and oyster sauce are a match made in heaven and combining them with noodles, fish, spring onions and sesame seeds can only be a good thing.

The original Wagamama recipe specifies monkfish but I mostly use frozen cod steaks, defrosted and marinated overnight in the fridge. I love monkfish and I bought some for the dish in the picture but currently it costs around £8.00 for 200g so I'll stick with cod. Cod takes the marinade just as well as monkfish but you could use any white fish really.
