Grilled Tilapia in Banana Leaves

This recipe is grilled tilapia in banana leaves stuffed with onions and tomatoes. Grilling is best when using live charcoal than using electric grill because it enhances the flavor. This is no ordinary grilled tilapia because instead of only using salt or patis for flavoring, this grilled fish uses Worcestershire sauce and lemon and dill marinade. If you can’t find lemon and dill marinade in your local supermarkets, you can make your own by searching the internet but it has quite a lot of ingredients.
