Serves 4

1 1/2 lb cod (or other white fish)
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 scallions, white and green parts chopped
about 1/4 cup chopped mint, cilantro, and basil, if you have them—some or all

Preheat the oven to 450°F.

In a baking pan with a tight-fitting lid, combine the fish sauce, vinegar, sugar, salt, and vegetable oil. Add the fish and sprinkle with the scallions and whichever herbs you’re using. Put on the lid and bake, 20-25 minutes, until the fish is white through and flakes easily. (All the moisture in the marinade gives you some leeway with cooking time—in other words, no need to stress about it.)

Serve, sprinkled with more fresh herbs, on a plate with edges deep enough to contain all the sauce.
