This looks good.  More descriptions, please!  Is that a stew in a small cylinder? What's on the banana leaves?

 

I'm afraid that for me, 'amok' refers to a frequent state of affairs in my kitchen. In this case does 'fish amok' refer to the seasonings, the means of cooking, both, or something else altogether?

The name "fish amok" brought a smile to my face. I believe the other night I served chicken amok, but it turned out well anyways after a comedy of errors. :)

 

Seriously, this is what wiki has to say about fish amok, and from some of the images on Google, my guess is that the white cylindrical container in @StephanieGodfrey's photo might be a carved coconut? If so, very cool way to present a dish.
