    CaliforniaJan's Note:

    Steaming fish in individual packets is not only healthy, it makes cleanup a breeze. The presentation in parchment paper is elegant, but foil works too. The fish cooks perfectly and the result is moist and flavorful!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
    2. 2
      Tear 4 lengths of parchment paper or foil, each about 18 inches long. Fold each length across in half and unfold. On 1/2 of each piece of paper place 1/4 of the fish. Top each piece of fish with 1/4 of the scallions.
    3. 3
      Whisk together the sesame oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce and honey until the honey is dissolved. Drizzle over the fish; sprinkle with sesame seeds. Crimp or fold over the edges to form a sealed packet. Repeat forming 4 packets. Place them on 2 baking sheets.
    4. 4
      Bake in the center of the oven for about 13 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish, until the packets are puffed. Remove from the oven and transfer a packet to each plate. Cut the top of the packets and open carefully to avoid the escaping steam and serve the fish in the open packets.
    5. 5
      Or, if you serve the fish with a side dish that will benefit from the addition of the tasty fish juice, empty the fish and sauce onto your plate!

      I followed the recipe exactly, except I added some fresh sliced ginger. This is so delicious and easy and quick to make! I used the parchment paper instead of the foil. I had cod on hand, but really think this recipe would be better with snapper....the cod was a little dense for the vinegar/soy/honey sauce to penetrate. But because I had the parchment paper packet, I could drag each bite through the lovely sauce! This is a wonderfully quick recipe to make with a great flavor. Thanks for sharing!

      This was a big hit and very easy to make. I didn't change the recipe at all, but I did use foil to wrap the fish in. Quick and easy! Made for ZWT7.
