Cooking ‘en papillote’, which means in a sealed envelope, is a great way to create a simple sauce and keep your fish moist. This dish is Asian-inspired and contains a punch from zingy ginger, a kick from chilli and a salty-sweet balance from soy sauce and mirin. A cleansing and restorative meal.

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 wholegrain 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 4 [8] pieces of baking paper (or tin foil) approx. the size of A3 sheets of paper 

Lay each basa fillet in the middle of 2 pieces (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 Pappillote

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 Pappillote

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 the lot

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