  • 2 long red chillies, seeded, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated ginger
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 lime, rind finely grated, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil
  • 4 (about 150g each) firm white fish fillets
  • 300g green beans, trimmed
  • 200g snow peas or sugar snap peas, trimmed
  • 1/2 cup coriander leaves
  • Steamed jasmine rice, to serve


  • Step 1
    Place the chilli and salt in a mortar and pound with a pestle until finely crushed. Alternatively, place in a bowl and use the end of a rolling pin to crush. Add the ginger, garlic, lime rind, lime juice, sugar and vinegar and combine.
  • Step 2
    Combine the cumin, turmeric, coriander and half the oil in a large bowl. Add the fish and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Step 3
    Heat a large frying pan over high heat. Cook the fish for 2-3 mins each side or until golden brown and cooked through.
  • Step 4
    Meanwhile, heat remaining oil in wok over high heat until very hot. Add beans, peas and chilli mixture and stir-fry for 3-4 mins or until beans are tender-crisp. Remove from heat. Add the coriander leaves and toss to combine.
  • Step 5
    Divide fish and bean mixture among serving plates. Serve with rice.
