Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red chile flakes
  • 1 stalk fresh lemongrass
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 4 (4-ounce) black cod fillets, each about about 1-inch thick, center-cut, boned and skinned
  • 1 tablespoon peeled and finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
  • 1 (14-ounce) can unsweetened light coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 small red bell pepper cored, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1 large carrot julienned
  • 4 green onions cut into 3-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • Lime wedges
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.
