Put some water and salt in a pot on the fire. When the water has come to the boil, add the fish and rice. When the fish is cooked, add the fish sauce and chopped lemon grass, garlic and spring onion. When these are cooked, taste and check the saltiness, then transfer everything to a serving-bowl, garnish with the coriander leaves and the ground black pepper, and serve.
