2 spring onions, sliced finely

1 tea­spoon finely grated lime rind

1 tea­spoon in­stant dashi gran­ules

¼ cup (60g) white miso paste

1 Put prawn meat, fish and egg white into a food pro­ces­sor and process un­til just com­ing to­gether, leav­ing some tex­ture. Trans­fer to a medium bowl and stir in spring onions and lime rind; sea­son with salt and freshly ground pep­per. Roll ta­ble­spoons of mix­ture into balls and trans­fer to a tray lined with bak­ing pa­per. Re­frig­er­ate for 30 min­utes.

2 Put the dashi gran­ules into a medium saucepan with 1 litre (4 cups) of water. Add the mirin, miso paste and the gin­ger; bring to the boil, re­duce heat and sim­mer.

3 Heat a large non-stick fry­ing pan over a medium to high heat with half the oil; cook the fish balls in batches for 5 to 7 min­utes or un­til lightly golden and cooked through. Re­peat with the re­main­ing oil and fish balls.

4 Mean­while, bring a large pot of water to the boil. Cook the noo­dles ac­cord­ing to packet in­struc­tions. Drain and di­vide be­tween four warm serv­ing bowls.

5 Add the mush­rooms, snow peas and bok choy to the gin­ger broth and bring to the boil.

6 Add the warm fish balls to the serv­ing bowls and la­dle over the hot gin­ger broth and veg­eta­bles.
