Grilled Fish Wrapped In Banana Leaf



It has been a long time since I last grilled fish on stove .  My Muslim colleague gave me some banana leaves harvested from her garden and thinking that since I love cooking, these banana leaves would be useful for me :)  I told her,  " yessss it is useful. I am going grill fish wrapped in these leaves " .  I normally steam the fish plain or with plum sauces but grilling them in banana leaves sent my salivary glands in full force :p  A great dish for buka puasa and I see a lot of grilled tilapia being sold at the Stadium food bazaar :)   Smell good too.  What I did was to rub curry powder and enough salt on the fish.   Wrapped the seasoned fish with the banana leaf, big enough to cover the whole fish.   Heat a tava or flat skillet that is used to cook the chapati , till hot.  Place the banana wrapped fish on the flat skillet and grill 6 mins on each side on medium heat..   Serve with tamarind chilli sauce with lots of onions  ....Yummy !

















rub Adabi fish curry powder and salt on the fish - I used baby garoupa















place the seasoned fish on a piece of banana leaf
you can either wrapped the fish  or just fold 
the other flap over the fish.















Heat a tava or flat skillet that is used to cook the chapati , till hot.  
Place the banana wrapped fish on the flat skillet 
and grill 6 mins on each side on medium heat..   
Serve with tamarind chilli sauce with lots of onions  ....Yummy !















this is so simple to prepare and not much washing needed :)















this is so delicious that I want to have this every day :)
