  • 3 fillets salmon, red snapper, cod, or other fish
  • 1 pkg. banana leaves (if frozen, thaw under running water)
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 thumb-size piece of ginger, sliced
  • 2 tsp. ground coriander
  • handful of basil and coriander leaves each
  • 2 Tbsp. fish sauce
  • 1/2 can good-quality coconut milk
  • 2 kaffir lime leaves, snipped into slivers with scissors,
  • 1 fresh red chili, sliced
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • juice of 1/2 lime


    1. Place all curry marinade/sauce ingredients in a food processor and blend well. Can be done ahead and kept in the fridge.
    2. Marinate the fish fillets in half the Marinade/Sauce for at least 15 min.
    3. Cut Banana leafs to size, place fish fillet into the centre of each parcels and wrap the sides around to obtain a package. Turn it seam-side down to keep sides from opening and place in glass casserole.
    4. Bake for 15 min at 200 degrees then check if the fish is cooked potentially leaving it in the oven a bit longer.
    5. To serve the fish, scoop several spoonfuls of coconut rice onto the side of the fish. Spoon some curry sauce (marinade) over the fish, then add a sprinkling of basil and/or coriander leaves. Goes well with stir fried Pak Choi.
