Feast for the Eyes

Check it out! Isn't this dish just a feast for the eyes? Believe it or not, I found the basic recipe in the quarterly magazine of our heath insurer! Good for them, good job!
I tried it and found it was 'missing' something. So I added a couple of things, I left out a couple of things, and here it is! All pimped up and ready to become your favourite 'make-ahead' recipe!


(for 4 persons)
•tiny piece of ginger root (approx. 2 cm), rasped
•2 spring onions, sliced in thin rings
•1 red chili pepper (no seeds, chopped)
•4 pieces of white fish (approx.200 g each)
•4 banana leaves
•1 tbs tamari sauce
•1 tsp of lemon zest
•1 tsp of sesame oil
•2 tsps of virgin olive oil

What you do
•preheat the oven to 175°C
•mix all the ingredients in a bowl keeping fish and banana leaves to the side
•now place each piece of fish in the middle of a banana leave and scoop 1/4 of the mixture on top of the fish
•close the banana leave using toothpicks
•place all the packages in a oven proof fish
•cook for aprox 30 min.

If you can find big enough banana leaves where you live, it is best to be able to close the leave entirely, making a little package :-D
