Cambodian grilled fish
Serves 2
350g yellowtail or other firm white fish, cut into portions (skin on)
1 tbsp grated ginger
1 tsp garlic, minced
2 tsp fish sauce
2 tbsp canola oil
For the Sauce
1 tbsp black tamarind, soaked in just enough boiling water to cover
2 tbsp palm sugar
30-40 ml water
1 tsp garlic, finely minced
½ red chillli, finely chopped
2 shallots, finely sliced

Coat the fish in ginger, garlic and fish sauce. Set aside to marinate for 20 minutes. In the meanwhile, strain the tamarind seeds and discard them.
In a nonstick pan on medium heat add the palm sugar. It will start to melt. After 30 seconds add the water and swirl the pan to dissolve the sugar. Allow the mixture to bubble.
Add the tamarind paste, chilli and garlic and cook down for a minute, stirring. Add the shallots and remove from the heat after 30 seconds.
Heat a pan to medium-high and add oil. Fry the fish skin side down first for a minute and a half, depending on thickness. Flip over and cook until done. Do not allow fish to dry out.
Serve hot, topped with tamarind shallot sauce and sticky rice.
