    awalde's Note:

    This tasty exotic dish served with vegetable topping and dipping sauce will be one of our favorites. The original cooking way would be on the fire; Fish and vegetables wrapped together in banana leaves (the banana leaf can be replaced with aluminium foil). This homey version can be easily prepared in a baking mold in the kitchen oven. Done and posted for ZWT7

      Scrumptious! Love the ginger and the spiciness of the chili peppers! Beautiful dish. I also really enjoyed the dipping sauce. I think it would also be great with shrimp or scallops. Thanks for sharing your lovely recipe!

      An easy eastern asian-styled dish, with layers of fresh flavors. At first glance, the recipe seems a little complicated, with so many sections, but it all goes together quickly. The marinade and the sauce can be made ahead. For the ZWT gluten-free challenge, I used a gluten-free soy sauce.
