Grilling in leaves
Another ancient method of grilling. Pieces of fish, chicken, or pork—or even whole quail—are wrapped in leaves and cooked on the grill or in the embers. One good example of the use of this technique is the Bluefish in Banana Leaves on page 307. The New England clambake, with its seaweed-lined fire pit, combines the techniques of grilling in leaves and roasting in embers.
