Scale the fish, wash with lemon, rinse and wipe dry.
Make several cuts diagonally across both sides of the fish.
Singe the banana leaf over fire. Clean with a little bleach and water. Wipe dry.
Place the fish on the banana leaf.
Rub in the green seasoning and sprinkle salt to taste.
Note: Make sure you get the seasoning well into the cuts.
Scatter the pimento, onion, carrot and ginger over the fish.
Whisk oil and soy sauce in a bowl then pour over the fish .
Wrap the leaf over the fish and place in the steamer over gently simmering water.
Cover tightly and steam for about 15 minutes or until tender. Unwrap and serve.
You can make a makeshift “steamer’ using a rice strainer and a cover over a pot of water.
