Citrus Baked Fish In Coconut Cream

Serves 4.


1 medium whole fish
½ tbsp. ground black pepper
1 lemon
1 mandarin or orange
½ c. coconut cream salt to taste


Wash and clean fish and place on a softened banana leaf. Thinly slice the lemon and mandarin or orange and alternate the slices on top of the fish. Sprinkle pepper and pour coconut cream around the fish. Wrap the fish well in about 3 layers of softened banana leaves and bake in a moderate oven for about 40 minutes or in an earth oven for about 1 hour.

Note: Don’t know where you can buy banana leaves but if you can get them you soften them with heat i.e. strong sun or fire. Alternatively, I’m sure foil works.
