  • 1/4 cup(s) fresh cilantro
  • 3 tablespoon(s) lime juice

  1. Preheat grill for medium heat. Combine fish sauce, lime juice, oil, sugar, ginger, and garlic in a small mixing bowl. Place each fillet skin side down on foil sheet. Top with Thai seasoning mixture, carrots, cilantro, and green onion. Seal packets, but not too tightly to be sure steam is allowed out during cooking. Place fish packets on grill and cook for 8-10 minutes. Remove from heat, cut foil with kitchen shears, and serve.
