  1. Take skinless, boneless fillets of a fresh, white fish (with good fat content) and divide it into 8 to 10 equal sized pieces.
  2. Mix together all the other ingredients in a small bowl and add the fish to it. Keep it covered in a fridge to marinate for 3 to 4 hours.
  3. Lay the banana leaves out and place one piece of fish in the centre. Fold over the short sides and then the long sides to form a parcel. Secure this with a tooth pick.
  4. Place on a grill at medium heat and grill either side for 3 minutes with the lid closed.
  5. Serve immediately and let the diners open the parcels on their plates.
