Put jalapeños, lemongrass, shallots, cilantro stems, garlic, ginger, coriander, cumin, salt, turmeric and ground lime leaf or zest from 1 lime in a food processor. Blend to create a curry paste, using up to 1/4 cup stock or water to help achieve a smooth puree. Blend well, at least 3 minutes.

Heat oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add curry paste and fry the paste for 2 to 3 minutes. Add coconut milk, remaining lime leaves or zest and fish sauce. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes.

Add halibut and turn the heat off. Let the residual heat gently cook the fish. After 5 minutes it will be ready to serve. Top with sesame seeds.

For the topping

Heat oil in a small sauté pan over medium-high heat. Fry chiles and onions until caramelized. Remove from the heat and stir in cilantro, lime pieces and salt. Place a spoonful on top of each serving.

To serve

Serve this dish with rice and sautéed greens.
