Place all the ingredients for the sauce in a food processor and process until smooth.
Chill until needed.
Preheat the oven to 180 &degC.
Scale and gut the fish, keeping the head, tail and fins intact.
Place the fish in a large, deep oven pan, season well with salt and pepper, grease with a little oil and add enough vegetable stock to cover the fish halfway.
Cover the pan with aluminium foil and poach the fish in the oven for about 20 minutes or until done and the fish flakes easily with a fork.
Carefully remove the fish from the pan and remove the skin while still hot.
Leave the fish to cool and pour over the herb sauce.
Deep-fry the vegetables in oil until golden brown.
Drain on paper towels and leave to cool.
Stack on top of the cooled fish.
