Red Curry Fish in Banana Leaves

Here’s another quick and easy fish recipe from one of my cookbook called “Cookshelf Thai” that I wanted to share Red Curry Fish in Banana Leaves ត្រីគ្រឿងក៉ារីក្នុងស្លឹកចេក. Actually I had made this and post up the recipe before this new page layout. That time I grilled it wrapped with parchment paper and foil. It taste great as well. But since I previously shared with you my Jungle Fish in Banana Leaves recipe I thought I put the banana leaves into another use just in case you decide to purchase a whole package of banana leaves.

Again I take the easy route by using skinless boneless fish fillet. These are fairly small so I used two of them. However you can use a whole fish just make sure to scale and clean it thoroughly. Also you want to rub the red curry mixture both inside out.

Ingredients
2 fish fillets
4 banana leaves
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon grated or minced ginger
1 teaspoon palm sugar or soft brown sugar
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1 tablespoon red curry paste
a couple splash of lime juice

Method:
Lay two banana leaves and place the fish on the center of the banana leaves.

In a small bowl mix together garlic, ginger, sugar, fish sauce and curry paste. Spread the mixture over the surface of the fish and squeeze a splash of lime juice on top.

Wrap the bananas leaves around the fish, tucking in the sides as you go, to make a neat parcel. Seal with toothpicks. Repeat with the other fish.

Place the parcel on the grill and cooked for about 20 minutes. There is no need to flip if the fillets are small like mine. The outer leaves will burn. Carefully unravel the parcel. Check that the fish is cooked. Garnish with lime wedge and chili and serve with hot steamed rice. ENJOY!
