4 portions
  • 4 Fish fillets, White
  • 4 tablespoons cream
  • 4 slices asadero cheese
  • 2 poblano peppers, deveined, roasted, peeled and in slices
  • 4 tablespoons corn kernels
  • 5 leaves corn
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper


We start by salting the fish fillets. Then on each of the corn leaves we put a steak and add a spoonful of cream, a slice of cheese grilling, half chile poblano in rajas and a spoonful of corn kernels.
Wrap the fish in the corn husk, as if wrapping a tamale. With the leftover corn leaf we cut a few bowls and tie around the wrapper to ensure that it does not open during cooking and give a better presentation.
We put each of the wrappers on a sheet of aluminum foil and wrap so that it is well sealed, in order to fix more the flavor of the corn leaf in our fish and also to preserve the juices.
Place the packets in a baking tray and introduce our fish to the oven for 20 minutes at 180ºC. When the aluminum foil has swollen, the fish is ready.


We remove the aluminum foil and present the fish wrapped in its sachet of corn leaf for the diner to open. It can be accompanied with white rice or some salad.


If you do not have an oven, you can bake it on a pan 10 minutes on each side. If you do not have much time, you can do it in the microwave in 3 minutes at maximum power. Remember not to put aluminum foil if you do it this way.
