Preparation


• Rub the fish with the turmeric and set aside to marinate for 15-20 minutes.

• Cut the banana leaves into 4-6 squares large enough to enclose a portion of fish. Line a large bamboo or metal steamer basket with baking paper to prevent sticking.

• Put the remaining ingredients, except the lime wedges in a small blender with half a teaspoon of salt and process to a coarse paste. Do not grind too finely or you will lose the texture of the coconut.

• Put a portion of fish into the centre of each banana leaf and apply a thick layer of the paste on top of the fish to completely enclose and put, fold side down, into a steamer basket.

• Cover with a tight-fitting lid and steam over a saucepan or wok simmering water for 10-15 minutes or until the fish is cooked through.

• Serve immediately in the leaves with the lime wedges.
