Healthy And Easy To Make Steamed Fish In Banana Leaves

One easy way to cook fish is to steam it – however, there are several ways you can add flavor to steamed fish. This recipe uses a mixture of herbs and spices spread all over the fish to make it very tasty. The fish is then wrapped in banana leaf which locks in a lovely aroma and flavor when steamed. This steamed fish can be eaten as is or served this with rice, bread or vegetables on the side.


This recipe takes about 10 to 15 minutes to make. Serves 2.

Spice Mixture:

• 1 cup of coriander leaves
• 1/4 cup of mint leaves
• 8 to 9 cloves of garlic
• 1 inch of ginger, peeled
• 7 to 8 pieces of green chilies
• 2 tsp salt
• 1/2 cup of water
• 2 tsp vinegar

• 2 baby pomfrets
• banana leaves
• 1 tsp olive oil
• 1 tsp vinegar


To make the spice mixture, blend all the ingredients: coriander leaves, mint leaves, garlic, ginger, green chilies, salt, water and vinegar in a food processor or blender until you get a pesto-like consistency.
Put the spice mixture in a small bowl and mix in olive oil and vinegar. Set this aside.
Quickly heat the banana leaves on the flame of your gas stove just until they become glossy. This will make the leave pliable enough to wrap the fish.
To prepare the fish, cut off the head. Wash and clean the fish then cut slits on both sides.
Spread the spice mixture on both sides of the fish.
Lay the fish on the banana leaf and fold the leaf into a packet.
Arrange your fish in a steamer and steam for 7 to 8 minutes.

Ideas And Tips:

• Banana leaves add flavor and aroma to anything that is cooked in them. They are also often used to line serving plates or party platters, which gives that vibrant background to any dish served on them. They are a more economical and healthy wrap to use than aluminum foil or parchment paper.

• The spice mixture can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator for up to 10 days. Make sure you only add the olive oil and vinegar when you are ready to use it.

• Fish fillets are a perfect option for this recipe.
