Natural Wraps to Keep Fish Moist

zeprosnepsid wants to use “something natural” to wrap fish in for baking. Blanched lettuce leaves came to mind, but there were none in the house. What else can one use?

Chowhounds had lots of ideas, including:

• banana leaves
• corn husks: let them dry in a low oven or in the sun and then re-hydrate in hot water, says Sam Fujisaka
• grape leaves
• lotus leaves: “If you use dried lotus leaves, soak them in warm water first for about half an hour,” says Sam D
• cabbage
• kale
• Swiss chard
• fresh herbs like mint or basil
• spinach
