Step 2: Whilst the fish is grilling, we can make the salad dressing. Add 2 tbsp of palm sugar, 4 tbsp of lime juice, 3 tbsp of fish sauce and 1 tbsp of chopped chilli to a jug and stir thoroughly until everything is completely mixed together.

Step 4: Next pour in 1/2 cup of bread crumbs, and mix in with the fish, and then deep fry the fish and breadcrumb mix in some hot oil for about 3 to 4 minutes until its golden brown all over, then place it on some paper towel to absorb any excess oil. You may need to cook in multiple batches depending on the size of your wok or fryer.
