    Kitchen Witch Steph's Note:

    My friend got this recipe off of Epicurious where it is touted as Tori Amos' favorite recipe. It is certainly popular with our husbands. It has a spicy sweetness to it. We live in too small of a town to find banana leaves so it is parchment paper for us. Coconut rice.makes a nice accompaniment.

      We liked this easy to make recipe. I used half a jalapeno and definitely had to use the parchment paper--no banana leaves. This was a guilt free dinner served with assorted roasted veggies. Thanks!

      This is soooo good. The flavors all come together with just the right amount of zing from the chili peppers (I used Chipolte). I did use the parchment paper as no banana leaves here! It was so easy, and made for a lovely, light, and healthy dinner. Served with brown rice and fresh green salad.

      Knock-your-socks-off INCREDIBLE!! I wish I hadn't already chosen my faves for the Zaar World Tour because this is a stand-out. After 25 minutes the fish is *so perfectly cooked* - moist and gently flakes. What an impressive presentation too-and it stays warm inside the leaf. I'd love to try these on the grill. Thanks for sharing this recipe-I might as well bookmark this page because I may be making this every week!
