   Coat the flesh side of the fish with lemon pepper and a little salt.
Heat a heavy based fry pan, add a little oil and fry the seasoned side of the fish for a minute, remove to a dish and keep aside.
Meanwhile carefully warm the coriander, ginger & lime dressing in a flat sauce pan, add the crushed chilli, ginger, spring onion, capsicum, fresh coriander and lemon juice.
Leave the pan on a low heat, just keep it hot, and don’t let it get even near the simmering point.
