Set it aside for the meantime to cool down. Afterwards, you can grind it in a blender or you may use a mortar and pestle.

2. Put the salted fish in running water to rinse it. Use paper towels to pat it dry. Afterwards, fry the fish in a non-stick skillet under medium heat until they are thoroughly cooked and light brown in colour on both sides. You can allow around 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Let it cool down for about 5 minutes. You must remove the bones and flake the fish and then set aside.

3. Using a large bowl, you should put in together the rice, flaked fish, coconut, shredded herbs, lemon grass, and of course, the ginger. Use salt and pepper to season then mix well.

4. You must place the rice mixture in a non-stick pan or even a wok. Heat it up for about 5 to 8 minutes or you can also bake it for around 8 to 10 minutes.
