  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Place each fillet in the centre of a large square of foil. Top with the pak choi, spring onions, chilli and ginger, then pull up the edges of the foil.

  2. Mix together the soy sauce, lime juice and 1 tbsp of water then spoon a little over each fillet. Crimp the top of the foil to enclose the fish and make sure there are no gaps for the steam to escape.

  3. Place the parcels on a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 mins until the fish is cooked through (this will depend on the thickness of your fish). Open up the parcels and drizzle over a few drops of sesame oil. Serve with rice.

The whole family love this served with rice and extra pak choi tenderstem broccoli and sugar snaps

Light and Lovely. I did it with five fillets, to feed the whole family, and would have added an extra lime and more soya to make sure to have lots of flavour to go with the rice! I also did it with tender stem broccoli instead of Pack Choi (we had Pack Choi the night before) and frozen fillets (only £3) so it took 25 minutes in the oven and was all cooked and delicious :)

Yet another recipe that claims an accurate calorie count but fails to give any indication of the size or weight of the main ingredient (fish fillet); I reckon a typical haddock fillet is 125 - 150 g so the calorie count is 112 - 135 kcal (90 kcal per 100g)

(I quite enjoyed the dish, though it cam out a little wet, but really that is too sloppy for a published recipe)

This is a brilliant recipe if you're doing the 5:2 diet. Makes a '2' day feel like a '5' day. I replace the rice with mashed sweet potato (86 calories per 100g).

Had this lovely dish without the spring onion and was still really enjoyable. Did it with rice infused with lemongrass and kaffir lime leaf and really enhanced the dish.

Absolutely delicious! I use sea bass fillets. Am cooking this again tonight and will be serving it with Jamie Olivers' lemon rice recipe. Think I've gone to heaven....................

Thanks for the tip lyndene; I did it with Jamie Oliver's lemon rice on your advice and it went really well. A very light and fresh dish

very tasty and the pak choi really helps to give it an extra dimension.

This may be healthy but it was also bland and tasteless. Won't be making again.

Very nice and tasty would make it again.

Made this last night for dinner and whilst it was perfectly nice, it didnt turn out as dark as in the picture and so was quite bland looking against the rice. May try again but might tweak the recipe slightly next time.
