Inspired by a Caribbean restaurant in Delray Beach, FL, this basa basa is steamed inside a banana leaf with exotic spices, fresh vegetables, cilantro, coconut milk, and lime juice. The fish comes out of the sauna, refreshed and invigorated, while all the vegetables are imparted with the coconut and lime flavors. Feel free to eat as much as you want; this dish is low on calories.

Ingredients:

  • banana leaves
  • basa basa
  • salt
  • blackpepper
  • garam masala
  • turmeric
  • red curry powder
  • ground cumin
  • canned corn
  • zuchinni
  • squash
  • limes
  • cilantro
  • coconut milk

1. Blanch a banana leaf in boiling water for about a minute. Lay down a skinless filet of basa basa and season on both sides with the spices. Top with slices of zuchinni and squash, canned corn, squeezed lime wedges, torn cilantro leaves and a pour of coconut milk. Finish with some more salt and pepper for the vegetables.

2. Wrap up the fish like a present and flip over onto aluminum foil. Wrap it up in the foil and flip again. Place on a sheet pan and bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes.

3. Open the package and take a taste, if it is not fully cooked, finish it off in the oven uncovered.
