  • Ingredients
  • Directions
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • 2 red shallots, chopped
  • 1 lemon grass stalk
  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger 1 mild red chilli, deseeded and roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon groundnut oil
  • 2 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 300 g (10 oz) boneless white fish fillets, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander, to garnish

Put the garlic, shallots, lemon grass, turmeric, ginger, chilli and salt and pepper into a food processor or blender and process until a paste is formed, adding the oil and fish sauce to help the grinding.

Place the fish in a bowl and toss with the spice paste. Cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes.

Thread the pieces of fish on to skewers and arrange on a foil-lined tray. Cook under a preheated hot grill for 4–5 minutes, turning once so that the pieces brown evenly. Serve sprinkled with the coriander.
