Baked Fish In Banana Leaves & Sambal Long Beans

Fish is one dish that best served simple. Like this one. Easy and simple. Satisfying and yummy :)
I had this fish with light soya sauce mixed with cut chili padi as a dip (not in the picture)

Recipe is from Nob Cook
What you need:
1 whole fish (I used seabass, you can use red snapper as per original recipe)
1 large banana leaf, divide into 2
1 1/2 tbsp ginger juice (peel, grate and squeeze old ginger)
2 tbsp light soya sauce
1 tsp lime juice
dash of white pepper
  1. Rinse clean fish including the inner side. Make a few slits on each side. Pat dry with kitchen towel
  2. In a small bowl, combine ginger juice, light soya sauce and lime juice also white pepper. Stir well
  3. Brush the mixture all over the fish. Marinate for about 1hour at least
  4. Place banana leaf over stove (low fire) to make it soft. Another way is to rinse with hot boiling water
  5. Place the leaf on the baking tray (I used Happy Call pan which has been preheated). Place the fish at the centre and pour the remaining marinade mixture. Cover it with another piece of banana leaf and secure all sides with toothpick
  6. Lock the pan and cook over very low fire til fully cooked, about 20mins (you may bake it in the preheated oven of 170degC for about 15mins
  7. Once cooked, transfer to a serving plate including the banana leaf (discard the top part)
Side dish is sambal long beans. I find they compliment each other really well :)

I cooked this dish simply by sautéing garlic and mixed in my Indonesian white condiment paste and some deseeded and coarsely blended large red chilies. Stir til fragrant and add in cut long beans and a little bit of water. Cook til long beans softened. So simple :)
