Ingredients

Fish

Green Onion Sauce

Ginger and Lime Sauce

Toppings

Preparation

Fish

  1. Preheat the grill, setting burners to high. Oil grate.
  2. Season fish inside and out with salt and pepper. Place fish in a basket (or directly on the grill). Grill fish for about 10 minutes on each side or until flesh peels easily from bone (reduce cooking time to 5 minutes on each side for fillets). Set aside on a large plate.

Green Onion Sauce

  1. In a small saucepan, heat oil. Add and melt sugar and salt. Add and soften green onions for about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and add cilantro. Set aside.

Ginger and Lime Sauce

  1. In a mortar, crush ginger (or less, to taste) and purée with sugar. Add remaining ingredients. Pour into a large bowl or in individual bowls. Set aside.

Assembly

  1. Pour green onion sauce on grilled fish. Sprinkle with chopped peanuts. Serve the whole fish at the centre of the table (or fillets on individual plates) with rice wrappers, toppings and a shallow dish filled with a little hot water. Allow each guest to prepare their own roll and dip in ginger and lime sauce.
