Step 1

Heat the oil. When it's hot, add the chillies, ginger, lime leaves and cook a few minutes until crisp. Remove from the heat and place on kitchen roll to absorb the excess oil.

Step 2

Reduce the heat and, in the same oil, fry the fillets 2 to 4 mins on the skin side first, then a further 2 mins on the other side. When the fish is well enough cooked for your liking, add a little salt and pepper.

Step 3

Mix all the leaves and other ingredients together, then spread evenly over each fillet. Squeeze a little lime juice on each fillet. Serve with rice or sweet potatoes for a more exotic dish ...

Step 4

Serve and enjoy!
