Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 4 fillets (200g each) john dory or barramundi
  • steamed basmati rice, steamed bok choy and lemon wedges, to serve
  • Marinade

  • 2cm piece ginger, peeled, grated
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 green onion, cut into 4 pieces
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil


  1. Make marinade: Combine ginger, garlic, onion, green onion, soy sauce, oil and pepper in a large ceramic dish.

  2. Add fish to marinade. Turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

  3. Preheat oven to 220°C. Cut four 50cm lengths of foil. Place 1 fish fillet in centre of each piece of foil. Spoon 2 tablespoons marinade over each. Fold up foil to form parcels. Seal edges (so juices won't run out). Place on a large baking tray. Bake fish for 15 to 20 minutes or until cooked through.

  4. Remove fish from foil and place on plates. Pour over any juices from parcels. Serve with steamed rice, bok choy and lemon wedges.
