Fish in Banana Leaf

Fish in Banana Leaf


  • 1 x 1kg small snapper or other white fleshed fish
  • 1 brown onion, finely chopped
  • 250g tomatoes
  • 30g fresh chopped ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 2 sprigs curry leaves
  • 2 tsp fish curry powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1-2 tbsp white or coconut vinegar
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • Banana leaf (fresh or frozen)


In a pan heat the vegetable oil, and add the ginger, garlic and onion. Sauté until soft. Add the curry leaves, chopped tomato and cook for a few minutes. Add the turmeric, pepper, salt and fish curry powder. Add the vinegar and season to taste. Set aside. Score both sides of the fish with a knife. Wipe clean the banana leaves and lightly brush with oil. Place half the tomato mix on the banana leaf, the length of the fish. Place the fish on top and spoon on remaining mix. Wrap the banana leaf around the fish until secure. Place in the oven at 200°C and bake for 20-25minutes. Serve whole or gently pull the flesh off the bone and place into a serving bowl. Serve with fresh coriander and fresh lime. This is also great to put on the bbq, cook for 10-12minutes on each side.
