4 servings (serving size: 5 ounces fish and 2 tablespoons sauce)

Lemongrass gives a characteristic citrus flavor and fragrance to many Asia dishes. You'll find this herb with long, thin, gravy-green leaves in the produce section of many supermarkets. You can substitute grated lemon peel, but cut the amount by half.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler.

Step 2

Combine first 9 ingredients in a food processor; pulse 3 times or until coarsely chopped. Place fish on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; spread 1/2 cup shallot mixture evenly over fish. Broil 15 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Serve the fish with the remaining shallot mixture, and garnish with cilantro sprigs and lemon wedges, if desired.

Super-easy using the mini processor.  Made to recipe, fish done in about 12-13min.  Liked the difference between the broiled topping and the raw topping served at the table   Served with sweet Indian basmati-saffron rice & steamed asparagus.

Extremely flavorful. Used only 1 tbl of fish sauce. Marinated the fish for about 1 hr and grilled. Served with sauté bok choy with garlic.

Quick, easy, and delicious! I only used half of the fish sauce, and I think it was perfect. It was a great weeknight meal, due to the ease and speed of cooking, but would also be good for company. I served it with some sauteed baby bok choy (just the bok choy,some garlic, and a little soy sauce). I will definitely make it again!

Quick and easy! Next time I will use less fish sauce - it was a bit strong. I used tilapia and doubled the chili sauce for more spice! Served with CL Yang Chow Fried Rice.

I used a bamboo steamer with bok choy, chinese cabbage & red bell pepper. It was excellent. I also put a bit of the lemon grass in the water and it added some flavor to the veggies and fish. I will make this again!
