Not only is this meal healthy but the flavours are divine!


  • 1/2 cup Coriander leaves
  • 1/2 cup flat leaf parsley
  • 1 garlic clove peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup Olive oil
  • 6 young banana leaves
  • 6 x 120g pieces salmon or ocean trout, boned and skinned cooking twine

Step 1

Using a stick blender, food processor or blender, puree the herbs and garlic.

Step 2

Blitz for 10 seconds before adding oil and a good dash of salt and pepper.

Step 3

Cut banana leaves to length with enough to cover and enclose fish.

Step 4

Pour boiling water over leaves, then rinse in cold water or run leaves over a gas flame until natural oils show through leaf. This makes leaves more pilable and lessens the risk of leaves splitting.

Step 5

Cool and dry leaves or wipe with a damp cloth before placing a fish portion in the centre of each leaf.

Step 6

Place 2 teaspoons of herb sauce on top of each piece of fish before folding leaf over the fish to form a parcel.

Step 7

Secure with twin, tie and place in steamer. Set aside.

Step 8

Fill Wok to bottom of handle rivets with water. Cover and bring to the boil.

Step 9

Place steamer over boiling water, cover, and cook for 12 minutes. Unwrap salmon and discard leaves to serve.

Step 10

Serve with vegetables or salad.

Chef's Tips

Banana leaves impart a nice earthy flavour to the fish. If banana leaves are not available use foil or Glad Bake.
