Spread on to the fillet to coat well. Place in a greased roasting pan and roast in the oven for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside to rest for 5 minutes. Heat rest of oil in a large frying pan or wok. Add remaining garlic and 5 ml mustard and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add mangetout and celery and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add bok choi and spring onions, cut into 2 cm pieces, and continue to stir-fry until bok choi has wilted. Stir in lemon juice and remaining 5 ml soy sauce and season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Slice fillet and serve with vegetables, buttered baby potatoes and extra mustard.
