Asian Fish in a Packet
This is our favorite way to prepare fish. Preparation and cooking time: 30 minutes. Serves 2.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
Take two 12x24-inch sheets of aluminum foil and fold each sheet of foil over to make a double-thick square. Brush a little vegetable oil in the center of each 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, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil , and a few drops of optional chili oil. Pour half the sauce over each serving. Fold the foil into airtight packets. Bake for 20 minutes. Carefully avoiding the steam (our lawyer made us say that) open a packet and check that the fish is cooked.
To serve, carefully open the foil and transfer the contents to plates. Or you can just place the foil packets on plates.
