Step 1 In a small bowl, whisk the oil with the soy sauce, mirin, ginger, chiles in oil, vinegar, sesame oil, and scallions, and then season the chile sauce with salt and pepper.
Step 2 In a medium bowl, combine the snow peas with the cilantro, mint, basil, 4 teaspoons of the olive oil, the fish sauce, and lime juice.
Step 3 Light a grill. Season the barramundi with salt and pepper, and then rub with the remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Grill the barramundi, turning once, until charred on each side, about 3 to 4 minutes.
Step 4In a small bowl, stir the crème fraîche with 2 tablespoons of the chile sauce and place the remaining chile sauce in another bowl. Serve the barramundi in the lettuce leaves with the crème fraîche sauce and chile sauce on the side.
Notes:For an authentic Korean experience, serve with soju, one of the world’s most popular libations. Learn more in this “starter guide to soju” by the A.V. Club.
