Mix the garlic onion, tomato, cilantro, salt, black pepper and achiote together. Put half of the sauce in the center of a banana leaf or sheet of foil, place the fish on top, and pour the rest of the sauce over it. Fold it all into a package. Bake or roast the package in a comal or a dry skillet for 20 minutes. Turn the package over several times during the roasting process. Unfold and serve warm.
