This Asian-inspired dish has zingy ginger, fiery chilli and a delicious salty-sweet balance from soy sauce and mirin. You’ll cook your fish ‘en papillote’ (that means, in a sealed 'parcel') with the tasty marinade and serve with brown rice, mange tout and carrot ribbons. (Dairy-free: see our FAQs for details).

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Snappy Asian Fish En Pappillote

Preheat the oven to 240°C/ 220°C (fan)/ 475°F/ Gas 9

Rinse the brown rice, add it to a pot with plenty of cold water and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium and cook for 15-20 min or until tender with a slight bite

2 Snappy Asian Fish En Pappillote

Meanwhile, peel and finely chop (or grate) the ginger

3 Snappy Asian Fish En Pappillote

Combine the chopped ginger, mirin, toasted sesame oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce and chilli flakes (Can't handle the heat? Go easy!) in a bowl

Mix well – this is your marinade

4 Snappy Asian Fish En Pappillote

Cut up 4 [8] A3 size sheets of baking paper (or tin foil) 

Lay each basa fillet in between 2 sheets (doubling it up prevents any leakages!) and add the parcels to a baking tray

Spoon the marinade over each basa evenly 

5 Snappy Asian Fish En Pappillote

Scrunch the edges of the baking paper together around the fish to form a sealed parcel

Put the baking tray in the oven for 15 min or until the fish is cooked

Tip: your fish is cooked when it turns opaque and flakes easily

6 Snappy Asian Fish En Papillote

Meanwhile, peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Trim then slice the spring onion[s] finely

Peel the carrot[s], then continue to peel lengths until you end up with a pile of carrot 'ribbons'

7 Snappy Asian Fish En Papillote

Once the rice is nearly tender, add the chopped garlic and mange tout to the same pot

Cook for a further 5 min before draining everything

Once drained, season lightly with salt and pepper and stir through the carrot ribbons until they've wilted slightly
