Baked Wrapped Pomfret

Menu tonite from MIL's recipe. According to her, in kampung this is a popular way of cooking non-fresh fish. Locally this is called "pais" but wrapped with palm leaf.

Here is photo of non-cooked fish with the 'bumbu', ready to be wrapped & baked:
I baked mine in my Morgan multi-cooker (becoming more indispensable now) which is easier than on griddle as I don't have to worry to flip frequently:
1-2 Pomfret
1 Lime
2 Shallots*
1 clove Garlic*
1 Lemongrass*
1-2 Red Chili*
Few Bird-eye Chili*

Some fresh grated Coconut* (* pounded)
1 tsp Turmeric Powder
1 Turmeric leaf**
Few Daun Cengkil**
(** sliced finely)
Salt, sugar
Banana Leaf

1. Rub fish with lime, salt & turmeric powder.
Marinate for a while.

2. Mix all the rest of ingredients to make the 'bubu'.

3. Place fish on a piece of banana leaf & sprinkle the bubu.
Wrap & secure ends with tooth picks.
Bake or place on a griddle.
(In kampung, this cooked over charcoal or wooden stove)
Flip occasionally
until cook.
