Heat the oil in a large skillet to 375oF. Deep-fry the fish fillets until very crispy and golden brown.
Charcoal-broil/grill the chilies, garlic and shallots until their outsides are charred. Remove the garlic and shallot skins.
Place the fried fish, chilies, garlic and shallots in a mortor and mash with the pestle until smooth, or use the blender.
Place the shrimp paste, fish sauce and palm sugar in a small saucepan and cook for about 15 minutes on medium-high heat, so that the mixture is reduced to a paste.
Thoroughly combine the mashed ingredients with the reduced sauce ingredients. Store in a jar with a tight-fitting lid and use as a dipping sauce or for cooking.
