  • ½ ginger flower, sliced
  • 1 thumb size ginger, sliced
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 pc banana leaf
Instructions
  1. Make a few slits on the fish on both sides. This is to ensure that the fish gets cooked evenly.

  3. Transfer the fish on top of the banana leaf with a plate underneath (in case the leaf breaks).
  4. Place/rub all the rest of the ingredients except the oil, all over the fish.
