Asian Fish Parcel with McCain is an Asian Fusion dish that we love eating as a family. Since young, I have always loved the Asian spice flavour but my husband and children were born in the UK and they tend to prefer milder flavours with potatoes being a regular staple. Hence I am serving this Asian meal with western sides!
Below, I have made this foodie vlog to show you how easy it is to make a fish parcel meal in the oven and bake it along with yummy McCain chips! As a weekly routine, I always try to get our family to eat at least a portion of fish. I am using the oven method to steam the fish. By tightly sealing the parcel, the marinade inside the fish gets heated up and steams it. This also locks most of the nutrients and flavour inside the parcel!
To make this meal for two people, I used:
- 2 fish fillets
- A bundle of tenderstems
- A few drops of sesame oil
- McCain Home Chips
- 1 stick of lemongrass
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1 tablespoon of ginger
- fresh coriander
- 4 teaspoon fish sauce
- 2 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 lime
- Preheat the oven to 220°C.
- Place the kitchen foil on the baking tray followed by the paper parchment.
- Put the vegetables inside the paper parchment and place the fish on top.
- Mix and blend the lemongrass, chilli, garlic, ginger, pepper, coriander, fish sauce and soy sauce. Pour the mixture onto the fish and wrap it up.
- Spread the McCain Home Chips evenly in a single layer onto a baking tray and pop onto the middle shelf of the oven and bake.
- 5 minutes later, place the fish parcel onto the bottom tray of the oven and bake for a further 17 minutes.
- Before serving, add a few drops of sesame oil onto the fish. If you don’t have it, no worries, it can be left out. Now you are ready to serve it with tomatoes and carrots.
This is quite a straightforward and simple meal as it only takes 22 minutes in total in the oven! To save time, you can prepare your fish the night before!
Can you believe that we are in February now? Finally, I can breathe normally after the hectic week of spring cleaning getting ready for the Chinese New Year. I am so pleased to have squeezed in many house chores in January! This included a garage clear out too. Now I am looking forward to the half term!
