Sesame Cod en Papillote with Ginger and Scallions from www.EverydayMaven.com
  • 4 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 4 tablespoon Pacific Foods Organic Chicken Stock Unsalted
  • the zest of one medium lemon
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly grated ginger root
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chinese 5-Spice powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 large sheets of Parchment paper about 8" x 8"
  • 8 ounces organic baby spinach
  • 1 1/4 pounds Alaskan Cod cut into 4 evenly sized pieces
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 scallions thinly sliced
  • 1 handful cilantro finely chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 450F.
  2. In a small bowl, combine sesame oil, chicken stock, lemon zest, grated ginger, 5-spice powder and salt. Mix until well combined.
  3. Fold each piece of parchment paper into a triangle. Open back up and place 2 ounces of raw baby spinach in the middle of each. Top with a piece of cod. Sprinkle each piece of cod with salt and pepper.
  4. Spoon 1/4 of the sesame oil mixture over each piece of fish.
  5. Fold the parchment closed and begin to roll the seams until a "pocket" or pouch is formed. You want to make sure all of the seams are totally shut so the fish and spinach steam and the sauce is formed. If it is not sealed, it will leak.
  6. Place packets on a baking sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish.
  7. While packets are baking, thinly slice scallions and finely chop cilantro.
  8. Carefully remove to serving plate and slice open to serve. Be careful of the steam when you cut into the packets. Serve topped with sliced scallions and chopped cilantro over steamed rice or cauliflower rice and Enjoy!
