Tips and Suggestions

You can use this method with any fish; try salmon, sea bass, tuna, turbot or sole


1. Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Cut out 4 sheets of parchment paper, each twice the size of a sea bass fillet.

2. Whisk together the ginger, garlic, rice wine, soy sauce and sesame oil. Arrange the bok choy on the parchment sheets and top each with a sea bass fillet, some spring onion and chilli. Spoon the garlic and rice wine mixture over each fillet. Fold up the sides of the parchment paper and seal the corners with metal paper clips.

3. Place on a baking tray and cook in the oven for about 10 minutes. Serve straight to the table, allowing your guests to tear open the paper to reveal the steaming sea bass.
