Recipe: BAKED RAINBOW TROUT, served with dumplings, yams and greens, by Grace Dlabik and her mother Haiveta

"This recipe is a taste from my mother's homeland in Papua New Guinea (PNG). She has adapted it from using traditional foods sourced and harvested locally like fish, yams and coconut, to create her own little signature dish by using ingredients she can find in Australia." - Grace Dlabik
