The classic Chinese steamed entire fish inspired this Chinese Style Oven Baked Fish. The fish fillet is cooked in parchment paper with fragrant sesame oil and fresh ginger, and the sauce is poured on top right before serving. The scallions and cilantro on top provide a wonderful freshness and flavor. Delicious, simple, and nutritious!




  • 1 fish fillet white fish – cod, halibut, etc
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 inch ginger sliced or julienned



  • 1 tablespoon water

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • 1 teaspoon Shaoxing wine

  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar

  • 1 dash white pepper



  • 1 stalk scallion cut into thin slices
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves
  • red chili sliced or julienned




  • To bake fish, you can use a variety of parchment paper folding techniques. You can fold the paper in any way you choose as long as it makes a nice seal and can be readily torn to pour the sauce over the fish after it’s done cooking.
  • Place the wrapped fish on a baking sheet and into the oven.
