Ingredients

  • 2 trout fillets, each weighing about 140g/5oz
  • a small knob of fresh root ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 1 small garlic clove, chopped

  • grated zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 3 baby pak choi, each quartered lengthways
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce

Method

  1. Nestle the fish fillets side by side on a large square of foil and scatter the ginger, garlic, chilli and lime zest over them. Drizzle the lime juice on top and then scatter the pieces of pak choi around and on top of the fish. Pour the soy sauce over the pak choi and loosely seal the foil to make a package, making sure you leave space at the top for the steam to circulate as the fish cooks.
  2. Steam for 15 minutes. (If you haven’t got a steamer, put the parcel on a heatproof plate over a pan of gently simmering water, cover with a lid and steam.)

I cooked this for my Dad and we both loved it. So simple and yet packed full of flavour.

This was delicious. We had it with coconut rice and added fresh corriander - very tasty. I think it could have had a little more ginger but still nommy!

Very tasty and I love that the green veg is included in the pouches so you don't have to make some separately. Like others, I also ended up making this in the oven - which works fine, although I imagine the pak choi would come out a little less floppy if it was steamed. Served with a side of rice this is a delicious weeknight meal.

Too big to fit in the steamer so cooked in the oven for 15 mins at 160C fan. Brilliant recipe - quick, easy and very delicious!

DELICIOUS! I followed the recipe exactly (apart from adding 2 big cloves of garlic) and served with basmati rice. I was amazed how tasty it was for a dish which requires very little thought and effort. Yummy, will be making this again!

I loved this recipe. Simple and quick to prepare and really delicious. I had never used pak choi before but will definitely buy it more often. I placed the foil parcels in the oven for 15 mins - less washing up than using a steamer!

I made this with sea bass fillets for a dinner party and it was fabulous. Everyone loved it. And it was really easy too.

Very delicious! I used salmon as I already had some and I added some spring onions to the mix to add an extra flavour (also extra garlic because I cant get enough of the stuff!). I served with noodles, baby sweetcorn and the courgette salad also from the gf website. It was a real hit with my other half. Really easy to change the recipe to suit tastes aswell. I did everything exactly the same for my children except left out the chillis. It went down a treat! I will definately be doing this again

Delicious! I didn't have lime so used half a lemon and it worked really well.

Love this! Although I completely improvised on most of the ingredients as I just used what was in my cupboard - frozen salmon fillet with garlic granules, ground ginger, lemon juice and some fish sauce (nam pla) with a chopped red chilli out of a jar! Served with sweet chilli noodles and a large side of broccolli.....beautiful! I also don't have a steamer so just used the foil parcel in the oven :)

I love this recipe - it is so simple and tasty. I like to add tender-stem broccoli to steam in the parcels along with the baby pak choi to boost the healthy vegetable aspect of the dish. It is also fantastic accompanied with a packet of Tilda's Lime and Corriander rice (microwave a bag for 1 minute - so quick and easy and perfect every time).

Just cooked this but with chicken. So easy and tasted amazing. Added some red pepper and spring onion to bulk it out and served with coconut rice. Destined to become a fave!
