Serves: 2 people
5 from 5 votes


  • 2 large sheets (about 9x11) of parchment paper
  • 8 ounces snipped green beans
  • 1 large shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1 small red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 2 [6 ounce] filets halibut, skin removed
  • 2 tbsp white miso paste
  • 2 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 1 tsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp sriracha sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt, or more to taste
  • 1/2 tsp white pepper
  • steamed white rice, optional for serving
  • black and white sesame seeds, optional for serving
  • fresh cilantro leaves, optional for serving
  • lime wedges, optional for serving


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and lay out the sheets of parchment paper on a flat surface.
  • Evenly divide the green beans, shallot, and red bell pepper among the 2 pieces of parchment paper, placing the ingredients in the center of the parchment. Place the halibut on top.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the miso, coconut aminos, fish sauce, sriracha and honey. Evenly pour over the tops of the halibut.
  • Sprinkle the top of the fish with salt and the white pepper.
  • Fold down the short ends of the parchment paper over the fish, making a rectangle. Then, grab the open ends and roll towards the fish so that no liquids can escape and creating an enclosed package.
  • Place the parcels on a sheet pan and transfer to the oven. Bake until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily, about 13-15 minutes.

    The miso sauce is amazing! We made this recipe for New Year’s Eve at home with some giant halibut fillets from Whole Foods. It is quick to assemble and a very easy clean up. Can’t wait to try the sauce on other types of fish or even chicken.

    This was delicious- and super easy. I made it pretty much as written except I used asparagus instead of green beans and soy instead of coconut aminos- because that is what I had. I did use Halibut as written, but I could see this with several other lean, firm white fishes. I have a subscription similar to Fish Fix- so I see this in my rotation.

    Hello! Could I substitute Salmon or Tilapia for the Halibut?
