DIRECTIONS

  • Place a steamer basket over a pot of boiling water. If desired, add herbs to the boiling water to add flavor to the dish (basil, thyme, oregano, lemon peel, etc).
  • In a small bowl, combine the ginger, soy sauce, garlic and lemon juice. Add salt and pepper to taste, then set aside.
  • Rinse the fish filet then pat dry. Cut into three portions. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Place a piece of snapper in the center of a banana leaf. Top with one third of the cherry tomatoes and 3 clams. Drizzle a third of the marinade over the fish. Fold the banana leaves around the fish to form a packet, then tie with twine to hold it together. Repeat with the remaining fish pieces.
  • Place the packets into the steamer basket. Cover the steamer and steam for 15 minutes.
  • Serve with rice or sweet potato mash (the white kind).
