Notes:

This recipe is delicious, simple, and really easy to cook.

Tips:

You can usually find fresh banana leaves sold in packages (they contain several leaves). Store whatever is leftover in the freezer and they should last a long time. If you cannot find fresh, you can certainly purchase frozen ones from the freezer section.
However, if you cannot find banana leaves at all, you can use aluminium foil but you won't get the flavor from the banana leaf.
