How to make it

  • Mince garlic and wearing gloves mince serrano chilies.
  • In a blender, puree all sauce ingredients until smooth
  • FISH
  • If using banana leaves, cut away ribs and in a large bowl of hot water soften leaves for 1 minute to keep them from splitting.
  • Cut six 8-inch (20cm) squares from leaves.
  • On a work surface arrange 1 leaf square and pat dry
  • Spread 1 teaspoon of herb sauce down the middle of the square, equal to the length of the fish.
  • Arrange fish, skin side down on top of sauce
  • Spread 1 tablespoon of sauce over fish
  • Fold top, bottom and side pieces of leaf over fish to form an envelope style package.
  • Secure with bamboo skewers if necessary
  • Load all packets into a bamboo steamer or onto the barbecue rack
  • For steaming, over boiling water until fish is just cooked through, about 8 minutes.
  • If barbecuing, keep moist and it will take a lot less time to cook, about 4 minutes.

    The fish dish was AWESOME! I could not find Haddock (Whole Foods, who da' thunk), so I substituted Halibut. Yum. I would add that I "marinated" fish for about 10-15 min in the sauce, that helped infuse the flavor better, as my fish sections were about 1 1/2 " thick. You may decide to cook the fish 1-2 minutes less, as the citrus cooks it a bit.
