  3. Heat the oil in a large frypan and add the blended paste and water.
  4. Let the mixture simmer for 5 minutes then add the lemongrass and star fruit.
  5. Stir and let simmer for a few minutes.
  6. Add the fish and cook over a medium heat, turning the steaks carefully several times to coat them with the paste.
  7. Add a little more water if the paste looks like drying up.
  8. Cook the steaks for about 8 minutes if you like them rare or up to 15 minutes for well done.
  9. Serve on warmed plates with steamed rice, garnished with coriander sprigs.
