  • 1-11/2 kg whole (or two sides) cleaned firm fish such as yellowtail, kingklip or butterfish
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, crushed
  • 4 teaspoons fresh ginger, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon chopped chilli
  • 3 tablespoons fish masala
  • 1 large or 2 medium banana leaves, washed
  • 2 ripe tomatoes, sliced into rings
  • 2 onions, sliced into rings
  • 1 lime, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup coconut cream

Cooking Instructions

Preheat oven to 180°C.
Rub fish with garlic, ginger, chilli and masala on both sides. Place down on banana leaf. Top with sliced tomato, onion and sliced lime and pour coconut milk over.
Fold banana leaf over, or cover with remaining leaf. Secure with wooden skewers to prevent juices running out. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and place on serving platter. Remove skewers and serve warm.

Note: You can give the fish a North African flavour by rubbing with Moroccan paste or harissa instead. Or replace the spices with garlic, tomato and chopped olives and a generous drizzle of olive oil for a Mediterranean flavour
