The day before:

Peel and grate ginger.

Peel and chop shallots.

Put ginger, shallots, garlic and pepper in a bowl with the juice of both limes and soy sauce. Leave to marinate overnight.

Boil leeks in salt water for 20 minutes. Leave to cool.

Wrap in a clean towel and leave to dry overnight, so cloth absorbs water.

On the day:

Caramelise the leeks in 25g butter, then remove from pan and keep warm.

In same pan, fry fish in remaining 50g butter, 5 minutes on each side. Keep warm, on same plate as leeks.

Peel and slice mango, then in same pan again, sauté for a few minutes and add lime and soy sauce mixture.

Add leeks, then fish.

At the last moment, add chopped herbs and capers.

Serve with basmati rice.
