  1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. In a food processor, blitz the peanut butter with half the coriander, half the lime juice, and all the garlic, chilli and ginger until roughly combined.
  2. Put the basa fillets on a baking tray lined with nonstick baking paper. Divide the peanut butter mix between the fillets and gently spread over to coat the top. Bake for 12 mins or until cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, put the stir-fry vegetables in a bowl and mix in most of the remaining coriander. Whisk the remaining lime juice with the soy sauce, sweet chilli and vinegar (or extra lime juice). Pour over the veg and toss together. Set aside for 10 mins to soften slightly, then serve with the basa fillets and reserved coriander.
