Banana Leaf Seafood

Recipe by  

"This recipe is spiced up using Asian chili paste - sambal belachan - doesn't taste as good if you omit it! Salmon, clams, mussels, etc. may be used in place of squid."

I made this because my fiance loves squid but wanted to try something different. I was going to use tin foil instead of the banana leaf, but I realized that we had one of those trees in our back yard! The next time I make this I will watch carefully the cooking time and NOT cover the grill (I overcooked this batch, cooking 15 mins with lid on). I will also use 1/2 the cumin. But otherwise this is a very good recipe and I can't wait to try it again!

This recipe is terrific - we've tried it on salmon & trout. We made it for friends who said it was the best fish they've ever eaten.

I used dory fish. I do not if it was because I used fish instead of squid but it was way too salty. The belachan was overwhelming.
