|Made Tikin Xic Grilled Fish yesterday. Excellent! Amazingly I found achiote paste and bananas leaves at the India Food Store in Regina. Go figure!
Here is the recipe we used.
12 oz. achiote paste (you can buy it online or in a Mexican Market)
4 fresh fish fillets (your choice fish such as grouper or red snapper with skin)
2 ripe fresh red tomatoes (sliced)
1 large white onion (sliced)
1 green bell pepper (sliced)
1 teaspoon virgin oil
1 small orange juice (buy orange that is tart and not too sweet)
2 limes (juice and a bit of the pulp)
Banana leaves for wrapping fish
How to Prepare: Blend the achiote paste with the orange and limes juice, add a bit of water to make a smooth thick paste to marinate the fillets with in both sides. Place each marinated fish fillet in its own banana leaf square; top each fillet with a slice of tomato, green bell pepper, onion ; then wrap and tied with a thin banana fiber (from center of leaf). Grill. Be sure not to overcook.
