Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time


Firm Fish fillets (about 8 oz/person) scrod, turbot, haddock or salmon
1 ½ cooked rice
2 cups coarsely chopped mustard greens or bok choy
2 scallions, chopped
1Tbl vegetable oil
1 tsp. grated fresh ginger root
3-4 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
2 Tbl. Soy sauce
2 tsp. dark sesame oil
chili oil - optional

Preheat oven to 450 f

Take two 12x24 inch sheets of aluminum foil, and fold each sheet of foil over to make a double-thick square. Rinse the fish and prepare all of the ingredients.

Spread half of the rice on the center of each foil square and then layer the greens, fish, and scallions on top of the rice. In a small bowl combine the vegetable oil, grated ginger, garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, and a few drops of chili oil. Pour half the mixture over each serving. Fold the foil into airtight packets. Bake for 20-40 munites. Carefully avoiding the steam that will be released, open a packet and check that the fish is cooked.

To serve, carefully open the foil and transfer the contents to plates.

Fresh mushrooms (shiitake) placed on the greens beneath the fish are great too.
