Ingredients used in Fish Poleko
• Trout, cleaned (asala macha) - 3 lbs.
• Salt and pepper - to taste.
• Banana leaves - 1 numbers.
• Lemon wedges (for garnish) - to taste.
• Cumin powder - 1 teaspoons.
• Cooking oil - 2 tablespoons.
• Yellow mustard seeds - 1 tablespoons.
• Fresh red chilies - 5 numbers.
• Turmeric - 1 teaspoons.
• Grated nutmeg - 1/4 teaspoons.
• Szechwan pepper (timur) - 1/2 teaspoons.
• Lemon juice - 2 tablespoons.
• Garlic paste - 1 teaspoons.
• Ginger paste - 1 teaspoons.
• Salt and pepper - to taste.
In a blender combine all marinating ingredients into a smooth paste. Prepare a grill with glowing charcoal and wood chips. Trim and score the fish to form deep packets on all sides. Salt and pepper the fish first and smother with the marinating paste, inserting deep into the packets. Oil the banana leaf; gently heat up the banana leaf on the grill for a brief time, for it makes the banana leaf softer and workable. Immediately place the fish on the banana leaf and wrap in by ensuring a complete closure. Secure it with bamboo picks or a twain. Place the wrapped fish on grill and smoke-grill for 20-30 minutes, turning frequently. Once cooked, unwrap the banana leaf and put the fish on the bed of rice pilaf to serve, topped with tomato achar. Garnish with a fresh squeeze of lemon wedges.
