Method

In a large sauté pan add the milk, ginger, lemongrass, lime peel, turmeric, shallots and salt and pepper and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat, cover the pan and simmer for 5 minutes.

Add the fish skin-side down, place the lid on the pan and poach in the simmering milk for 6 minutes depending on the thickness of the fillets. With a slotted spoon remove the fish from the pan and scrape off and discard the skin. Keep the fish warm while you prepare the sauce.

Strain about half the liquid into a saucepan and place on a medium-high heat. Bring the milk sauce to the boil until the liquid is reduced by ⅓. Whisk in the butter and add the lime juice.

Pour the sauce on the fish fillets, garnish with sliced chillies and coriander and serve with jasmine rice.
