  • 2 tbsp Cobram Estate Light Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 Asian shallot, sliced
  • 1.5 inch piece galangal, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 stalks lemongrass
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric

METHOD :

  • In a wok or deep pan, add olive oil and heat. Add in sliced shallot and garlic, cooking for a few minutes until softened. Add in chilli powder and turmeric and toast them off for 1-2 minutes, until fragrant. Next, add the coconut milk and chicken stock and stir to combine.
  • Thinly slice the white part of the lemongrass stalks and add to the pan with the sliced galangal.
  • Roughly shred the kaffir lime leaves and add to the pan. Add in the brown sugar and fish sauce. Bring mixture to the boil over medium heat, then reduce heat to a simmer and cook for a further 10-15 minutes.
  • Turn the heat down low. Bruise the remaining parts of the lemongrass stalks and add to the mixture along with the fish. Gently poach for 4-5 minutes.
  • Spoon out poached fish from mixture and serve with fresh coriander and lime juice to taste.
