Fish Fillets Fried in Banana Leaves

Serves
Prep Time 20 minutes 
Cooking Time 15 minutes

 

700 grams white fish fillets
     (maya-maya or grouper),
     cut into 3-inch long fillets
salt and pepper
banana leaves
oil for frying
lemon wedges, to serve

For the spiced coconut paste
1 cup freshly grated coconut (niyog)
3 stalks cilantro (use roots, stalk, and leaves)
1 tablespoon coriander seeds, toasted
1 teaspoon cumin seeds, toasted
2 finger chilies
4 cloves garlic
1 (2- to 3-inch) piece ginger
3 tablespoons oil
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt

 

Wash fish fillets and pat dry. Season with salt and pepper.

Make the spiced coconut paste: Using a food processor or a mortar and pestle, grind the ingredients together.

Arrange fish fillets in banana leaves and cover with coconut paste. Wrap tightly. In a skillet, shallow-fry the fish until done, around 3 minutes on each side. Serve with lemon wedges.
