Default tilapia long ago banana leaf plate was used

Six 6-ounce portions tilapia, or other mild white fish
1-1/2 cups stone ground cornmeal
1/2 cup corn flour
3 tablespoons garlic powder
3 tablespoons onion powder
1 teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon ground chipotle (smoked red jalapeno)
2 teaspoons ground mixed herbs (rosemary, cilantro, thyme, parsley)
2 egg whites
1 cup extra virgin olive oil
Mix the dry ingredients. Dip the fish in the egg white wash and dredge in the mixture. Sauté the fish in olive oil over low heat, 2 to minutes per side.

For the smoked mushroom aioli:
6 shiitake mushrooms
2 portobello mushrooms
10 button mushrooms
1-1/2 cups extra virgin olive oil
2 egg yolks
1 teaspoon garlic
Juice of 2 lemons
Cayenne pepper to taste
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Grill the mushrooms over pecan wood (or any flavored wood) for 5 minutes. Heat 1/2 cup of the olive oil in a skillet. Add the garlic and sauté. Add the mushrooms; stir. Saute an additional 1 minute. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.

Combine the mushrooms, oil and garlic in a food processor. Add the egg yolks and process slowly. Slowly add the rest of the olive oil in a thin stream to form the emulsion. Season with the lemon juice, salt and peppers.

For the gingered vegetables:
1 red bell pepper
1 yellow bell pepper
1 medium eggplant
1 red onion
1 zucchini
1 yellow squash
1 teaspoon garlic
1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tablepsoon chopped cilantro
Cut the vegetables into 1/2 inch dice. Heat the olive oil in a skillet, add the vegetables, ginger and garlic and sauté 2-3 minutes. Add the soy sauce and cilantro, stir. Remove from heat and serve. ( On banana Leaves).. I added this because its how i ate it long ago...
not tonight though just regular plates .Wasnt the same magical feeling but the fish rocks . Tammy

To assemble the dish:
Arrange the vegetables on warm plates. Set the fish fillet over the vegetables. Spoon the aioli over the fish, and garnish as you like.

Ill look for my Steamed fish recipes and see if i can find the ones using banana Leafs as well ..
