Recipe Description:

Despite not being edible in their own right, banana leaves are widely used in the Indonesian kitchen. Sturdy, flexible, waterproof and biodegradable, they are folded or laid out as anything from takeaway containers to plates, serving trays and bowls. Their most delicious function, though, is as a container for steamed or grilled foods, offering total protection from boiling or burning, sealing spices and juices inside while infusing the food with the leaf’s delicate, sweet aroma. This pepes ikan, leaf-steamed fish, is often paired with rice and raw vegetables, in this case chayote, a yielding, fruity squash popular in Indonesian cuisine.
