Ingredients

TUMERIC FRIED RICE:
LONG BEAN SALAD:

Directions

Set up a steamer that can hold the 4 fillets. Mix lime juice, salt, sugar and water. Add the fish and brine for 20 minutes. Add the fillets to the steamer (should be lined with red leaf or banana leaf), top with the scallions and steam for 8 to10 minutes until cooked though. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat the peanut oil very hot until almost smoking. Mix the kaffir, chile, ginger, garlic and salt and pepper. First plate the halibut and right before serving, add the mix to the hot oil, mix and immediately flash the halibut. Serve.

TUMERIC FRIED RICE:

It is recommended to use day old rice so that the drier rice can soak up the flavors. In a wok, add 2 tablespoons of oil and quickly soft scramble the eggs. Remove the eggs. In the same wok, coat with oil and stir-fry garlic and ginger. Add scallions and rice and heat thoroughly. Add soy sauce, white pepper and scrambled eggs. Check for seasoning.

LONG BEAN SALAD:

Blanch the long beans in a 350 degree fryer for only 1 minute until wrinkled. Mix in a bowl the sambal, fish sauce and lime juice. Add the hot long beans. Check for seasoning and adjust. Let sit at room temperature.

Cook's Note

Wine Suggestion: Franck & Jean Francois Bailly Sancerre, 1997 PLATING Using a 2 1/2-inch O-ring or cut out tuna fish can, fill the bottom half with the fried rice. Top with the long beans and press down firmly. Top with the halibut and flash with the oil.
