Add the water to a medium saucepan and bring to the boil. Add jasmine rice and a pinch of salt. Stir, cover with a lid and reduce heat to low. Cook for 12 minutes, then remove pan from heat. Keep covered until rice is tender and the water is absorbed, 10-15 minutes. Stir the butter through the rice.

TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam, so don't peek!


While rice is cooking, trim green beans and cut into thirds. Cut Malaysian tofu into 2cm chunks. Crush black peppercorns with a pestle and mortar, or in their sachet with a rolling pin. In a medium bowl, combine corn flour, crushed peppercorns and the salt. Add tofu, tossing to coat. In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, honey and ginger paste.


In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook green beans, tossing regularly, until tender, 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.


Return frying pan to medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook tofu, tossing until browned, 3-4 minutes.


Return green beans to pan. Add soy-ginger mixture and cook, tossing to coat, until heated through, 30 seconds.


Divide rice between bowls. Top with salt and pepper barramundi and green beans, spooning over any remaining soy-ginger sauce from the pan. Tear over herbs to serve.
