Method

In a medium bowl, toss together mint, cilantro and sprouts; set aside.

In a small bowl, mix salt with sugar and chile flakes; set aside.

Remove the tough outer layer of the lemongrass then smash the remaining stalk with the side of a chef's knife or mallet to release the oils.

Finely chop and set aside.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle each fillet with the salt mixture then sear, flipping once, until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side.

Move fish to one side of the skillet then add ginger and garlic and cook for 1 minute.

Add coconut milk, soy sauce, fish sauce, chopped lemongrass, bell peppers, carrots and green onions and cook for 5 minutes at a fast simmer, or until the fish is just done and opaque throughout; stir in lime juice.

Serve cod in bowls, ladling the broth and vegetables over the top.

Garnish with reserved sprout mixture and lime wedges.
