3. Meanwhile halve the pepper, remove the core and seeds, and cut into strips. Slice the spring onions; halve the mushrooms.
4. Heat the oil in another sauté pan and stir-fry the  vegetables over a high heat for 3-4 minutes until just tender. Season well with pepper.
5. Serve the fish with the sauce spooned over and accompanied by the stir-fried vegetables.

If you like fresh root ginger, grate a little into the pan as you stir-fry the vegetables.
