The dish that I am presenting today is called Banana Fish Bake, which is a recipe that I found in a cookbook called World Cuisine at Home: International Family Menus & Recipes
Banana Fish Bake with Rice – Recipe adapted from World Cuisine at Home: International Family Menus & Recipes
4 White Fish Fillets ( I used cod)
salt & pepper, to taste
4 ripe bananas, peeled & sliced
1 onion, sliced
15 oz. can Coconut Milk
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
Place 4 pieces of aluminum foil onto a cookie sheet. Place a cod fillet onto each piece of aluminum foil and sprinkle with salt & pepper.
Top with a layer of bananas and then onions.
Fold the aluminum foil to make a pouch and then pour the coconut milk over the fish.
Fold the foil and leave a small vent at the top.
Bake in the oven for 30 to 45 min. or until fish is cooked and tender.
Serve fish over rice.
