large  banana leaves
cup  KRAFT Original Barbecue Sauce
cup  finely chopped hearts of palm
cup  finely chopped red onions
cup  finely chopped cilantro

Make It

PREHEAT grill to medium-high heat. Cut 1 orange into slices; place in the inside cavity of the fish. Place fish on banana leaves; brush generously with barbecue sauce on both sides. Wrap fish in leaves.

GRILL fish 35 to 40 min., turning several times, or until cooked through and fish flakes easily with a fork.

MEANWHILE, section remaining oranges by cutting a 1/2-inch thick slice off the top and bottom ends of oranges. Cut the peel and the pith away from the fruit with a sharp paring knife, using a downward motion that follows the shape of the orange. Cut the orange segments into small cubes; place in a medium bowl. Add any juice from oranges, hearts of palm, onions, cilantro and ham. Serve fruit salsa with fish.

Banana leaves, found in most Latin markets, are used in the cooking of Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean and Southeast Asia to wrap foods for steaming. Choose fresh looking leaves with no signs of browning. Rinse leaves well before using and cut out leaf's spine. Before wrapping, soften by dipping in boiling water.
