Prepare banana leaf, wash, dry and cut into shape of an oval to fit comfortably in top Varoma tray. (if no banana leaf use baking paper if you like) Place banana leaf on tray, place fish on top. Note: If fish tail overlaps important to trim to ensure the top of the Varoma lid closes. Place a few slices of lemon and sprigs of coriander inside belly of fish.
If you are not using a whole fish, follow recipe same with portions of fish.Season with salt & pepper. Using scales measure water in bowl, add ginger & salt to bowl to flavour rice while cooking. Using the scales again, measure rice in basket, IMPORTANT TO RINSE RICE, then place basket in bowl. Place bowl lid on without MC Place Varoma dish on bowl lid, (bottom tray of Varoma empty, fish sits in top tray).
