In a small saucepan, heat the stock to a boil, add the sugar, lower heat and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and pour the stock into a bowl. Add the fish sauce and lime juice.
Mince the remaining ingredients and add it to the sauce. Stir well.
Place the fish on a serving dish with edges. Gently pour the sauce over the fish, keeping most of the garlic, coriander, and chilies on top of the fish. Serve with Jasmin rice.
