Miso Halibut en Papillote (In Parchment)

Servings: 2 people


  • 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.

    Made this last night for a dinner party for six. Doubled the sauce except for the sriracha. It was fantastic. The very thick fillets cooked 20 minutes and the normal ones 15 minutes. Perfect. And as others have said, Rave Reviews! Thanks, Alex. Your 1st book got us through t he worst of the pandemic! (served it with garlic noodles and baby bok choi)
