Double-Ginger Fish

2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 pound firm white fish fillets -- cut 1" by 2 1/2" (such as seabass, halibut or cod)

For the Sauce:
2 tablespoons Chinese rice wine (or dry sherry)
1 teaspoon fish sauce
For the Dish:
2 lemongrass stalks, bottom 6" only -- minced
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon minced ginger
3 green onions -- trimmed, and cut into 1/2" pieces
1 tablespoon chopped pickled young ginger
1 small chili, such as jalapeņo -- seeded, minced
Cilantro sprigs -- (optional)


Stir the cornstarch and salt together in a bowl. Add the fish slices and toss gently to coat. Let stand for 10 minutes.


For the Sauce: Stir the rice wine and fish sauce together in a small bowl.
