Turmeric Fish Banh Mi
While traditional Banh Mi has pork or beef, our version with tender pieces of lightly spiced fish is perfect for a warm summer lunch or dinner.
Cut the fish into thick batons.
Combine all the remaining ingredients in a shallow dish and add the fish, turning to coat well. Marinate for 15 minutes.
Heat a little vegetable oil in a sauté pan and cook the fish for 2–3 minutes each side or until just cooked through. Drain on kitchen towels.
To serve: Spread the warm grilled baguette with mayonnaise. Top with the sliced cucumber, jalapeño if using, some of the herbs and then the fish. Add the quick pickles, the remaining herbs and a squeeze of lime to serve. Serves 4
