This is a simple and highly effective way of cooking fish on an open fire and works on the principle of baking the fish in a parcel.
Lay the fillet of fish on a banana leaf, place a couple of olives, capers and crushed garlic cloves on top of the fish. Pour over about 125mls of cream. Fold the banana leaf over and tuck edges underneath. Repeat process with banana leaves until you have a sealed parcel. Using the wire, secure the banana leaves. Place directly on the coals, or if you have a grid place parcel on the grid. Let it cook for about 10-15 minutes, turning the parcel only once. Don’t worry if the banana leaves burn and turn black – the cream placed inside will prevent the fish from burning.
Open up the parcel and serve fish whilst still tin the parcel with a green salad and wedges of lemon and salt to taste.
