I love cooking this whether it is for one or for six people. If you are lucky enough to be living in an area where there are stores that sell banana leaves, then by all means use them. You can also use tinfoil or parchment paper. The idea is to steam the meat or fish or just vegetables in their own juices or with just a little additional liquid. And serving these little packets is so great when you have guests. You will find the use of banana leaves in any cuisine where banana leaves grow naturally. What is nice about cooking in this manner is that any sauce in the ChileBoss™ family can be substituted depending on the meat or fish used. Keep cooking and try them all.
