2 tsp grated ginger
2 tsp grated lemongrass
2 tsp lime zest

The Avocado Cream:
1. Run (all except the oil) in blender until a smooth mix. Taste, add some salt and chili powder if needed.
2. Add the melted coconut oil. Mix briefly.

The Cod:
1. Pour the oil and spices over the cod. Steam the fish in a steam oven, bake in an oven wrapped in aluminum foil parcel or in a steaming basket in a pan on the stove.

The Mushrooms:
1. Pour the tamari, lime juice and salt over the mushrooms. Let marinate 30 minutes.
2. Fry in a bit of olive oil until all liquid has evaporated.

The Veggies:
1. Spiralize the carrot and the zucchini
2. Thinly shave the radishes
3. Remove the membranes (white parts inside) from the bell peppers and slice into thin strips

Serve as is or add some toasted pecans and Quinoa.
