3 large fig leaves
3 fish fillets (mahi mahi, Ono, salmon, whatever you like)
coconut oil
salt & pepper
lemon or lime juice

Preheat your oven or grill to 400˚F.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Rinse the fig leaves in water and remove the stem. Place four large fig-leaves in the boiling water. Blanch the leaves for a minute or two, until they are soft. Remove the leaves.

Lay the fig leaves flat on the counter. Place a fish fillet, or shrimp on top of each leaf. Paint the fish/shrimp with a small amount of olive oil, using a pastry brush. Sprinkle the fish with salt and pepper. Squeeze lemon, or lime juice over the fish. Bring up the sides of the fig leaves and wrap each fillet.

Or, place the fish packages on the grill – folded sides facing down – if grilling. Bake the fish for approximately 10 minutes in an oven. If using a grill, allow three to four minutes of cooking time per side.

Remove the fish from the grill or oven; place the packages on a serving plate. Serve the fish wrapped in the fig leaves. Makes 3 servings.
