400g (1 pkt) sole or any type of fish fillet
2 tbsp coconut oil or vegetable oil
1/2 cup onion
1/4 cup tomatoes
1 green chillie optional
1/2 tsp ginger grated
1 tbsp tamarind
1/2 tsp chillie flakes
1/2 tsp fennel seeds coarsely ground
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp salt
banana leaves to wrap
Heat 1 tbsp oil sauté the onions with the spices, garlic and ginger. When it is a little soft add the tamarind liquid and tomatoes. Cook for about 2 minutes for the spices to blend.
Place the fish fillet on the banana leaf and put the sauce over it and wrap with the leaf. There is no need to wrap it tightly.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes at 425F, the time depends on the type of fish and preference. If there is lots of liquid leave for another 5 minutes more in the oven for it to absorb. The fish doesn't need to become dry, it is better if there is some liquid left.
Any type of fish fillet can be used. If banana leaves are not available, use foil or wax paper.
I won the book Plate to Pixel by Helene Dujardin from Susan, the well seasoned cook for participating on her MLLA #37. I enjoy this monthly event very much, prior to this event I wasn't sure what legumes included :) Thank you Susan for this knowledge and for this fabulous book which is user friendly with awesome pictures and tips.
Susan, this is my first win blogging :) I very much appreciate your kind words and hoping to benefit from this book :)
This "thank you" picture goes to black and white wednesday.
