Banana leaves can be found in most Latin American or Southeast Asian markets - usually, they're found in the freezer section. They have a pleasant scent that smells somewhat like tea, and wrapping fish in banana leaves and steaming them imparts some of the banana leaf flavor in them. Plus, the banana leaf acts as a convenient little packet for holding other ingredients with the fish, and keeps the fish from falling apart or losing delicious juices.
