      Nice slightly sweet flavor and so easy to prepare! I used parchment paper and added a little olive oil to the mixture as well. Thanks!

      This was great and easy fish. The list of ingredients is not something I always have on hand, but now that I do, I will use them for sure!!! Very moist and flakey. Made with Dan Dan noodles for Chinese New Year

      I don't think that in China, aluiminum foil is used to aid in the cooking with banana leaves. Sorry.
