Steamed thai fish  

This one is easy

Buy a big piece of fish/a whole fish (esp good with rainbow trout). If it's whole then put everything in the middle, otherwise slash it up a bit and put the stuff on top.

Add roughly chopped garlic (4 cloves), lemongrass (1 stalk), ginger (a piece the size of a thumb- sliced thinly)  & if desired chillies (1, chopped). A bit of fish sauce. Pour some olive or preferably sesame oil on too... Slice a lime into 4 and arrange along the top.

Lay all this on a bed of pak choi or chinese leaf on a big piece of foil and sprinkle with soy sauce. Now lift up the edges of the foil and press it all together to make a cornish pasty type shape. There needs to be a fair amount of air inside the package but pinch it airtight.

Stick in 200 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.

Serve with rice or on its own.
