This non-spicy recipe is a great option for children who can’t have Sambal Stingray.

Serves: 6

Prep time: 20 minutes

Marinating time: 2 hours


Way to grill: direct medium heat (350° to 450°F)

Grilling time: 8 to 10 minutes



1/3 cup white miso paste

1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk, stirred

2 teaspoons minced garlic

2 teaspoons granulated sugar

1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger


6 skinless black cod (sable fish) fillets, 5 to 6 ounces each and about ½ inch thick

6 banana leaves, each about 12 inches square

6 scallions, white and light green parts, thinly sliced

1 1/2 teaspoons low-sodium soy sauce

4–6 cups steamed rice, optional



1. In a small bowl whisk the marinade ingredients into a smooth paste. Smear the paste all over the fillets. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.

2. Rinse the banana leaves under cool running water or carefully wipe them clean with a soft, damp cloth.

3. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat.

4. Remove the excess marinade from the fillets, discard the marinade, and place each fillet on the center of a banana leaf. Place some scallions on top. Fold the leaf over to completely enclose the fillet and make a packet. Secure with a toothpick, being careful not to pierce the fish. Brush each packet on both sides with water.

5. Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the packets over direct medium heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until the leaves are blackened in some parts, 8 to 10 minutes, turning once. (If the leaves begin to burn through, move the packet[s] over indirect medium heat.) Remove one of the packets from the grill to check the fish for doneness. If it is opaque all the way through, the fish is done. If not, return to the grill for a few more minutes.

6. Carefully open each packet, remove any pin bones from the fillets, drizzle each with ¼ teaspoon of soy sauce, or more to taste, and serve with steamed rice, if desired.
