bri and i went to a work dinner a couple of weeks ago and they served some steamed halibut in banana leaves. it was delicious and bri said we had to try to make it for ourselves and i’m so glad we did! it was fun to experiment with a new way of cooking fish and it turned out great. there is no oil in this recipe and the fish is tender, flaky and flavorful. i thought it would be intimidating to make but it was surprisingly easy. we got our at world market and it worked perfectly. the halibut we purchased at Whole Foods.  – joanie

• start by gently rinsing the banana leaves, pat dry. cut into squares large enough to wrap the halibut. set aside.
