The fillets should be the same thickness so they cook in the same amount of time. The packets can be prepared several hours ahead and refrigerated until ready to cook. Combine coconut milk, ginger, sugar, lime juice, fish sauce and salt in small dish. Center each fillet on aluminum foil and bring up sides of foil close to edges of each fillet. Top each fillet with 3 tablespoons coconut milk mixture and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon mint. Fold together edges of foil to make 4 airtight packets. Place packets in single layer on baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees until fish is cooked through, about 18 minutes for 1-inch-thick fillets. Serve hot, at room temperature or chilled. 4 servings.

It has a loud fishy aroma and, in small quantities, it gives an indispensable authentic flavor to many Southeast Asian dishes. You can find fish sauce at Asian grocery stores and sometimes in the Asian sections of supermarkets. -- AM GOOD COOKING: An Asian Meal for All Seasons. ** MENU * ASIAN FISH PACKETS * THIN NOODLES WITH CARROTS, GREEN ONIONS AND CILANTRO * ORANGE CAKE WITH ORANGE SYRUP ** Ive adapted these recipes for grouper in coconut milk and noodles with carrots from some dishes I tried at LE COLONIAL, A SMALL INDOCHINESE RESTAURANT IN ST. BARTHS IN THE FRENCH WEST INDIES. ** This is a most appealing, upbeat meal. And although I like these dishes served hot, they are also good served at room temperature or chilled in hot weather. Snow peas make an excellent addition to the plate. ** A warm orange cake served with warm orange syrup from Mayas, a restaurant perched right on the waters edge, is a delicious finish for the meal. For a more festive appearance, serve sliced, sugared strawberries or raspberries on the side. ** Mandel is a cookbook author. Her latest book is "Celebrating the Midwestern Table" (Doubleday & Co., 1996).
