4 servings

  • Zest of 1/2 an orange
  • 1 teaspoon peeled, minced fresh ginger
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 heads baby bok choy, ends trimmed and cut into thirds through the stem
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup bean sprouts
  • 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Olive oil, for brushing packets
  • 1/3 cup diagonally thinly sliced scallions, for garnish
  • Cook's Note: Aluminum foil can be substituted for parchment paper.
  • Unfold and arrange the pieces of parchment on 2 baking sheets.
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Combine the orange zest, ginger, soy sauce, orange juice, vinegar, sesame oil and honey together in a small bowl; set aside.

  • Fold 4 (16 by-12-inch) parchment paper squares in 1/2 lengthwise.

  • Evenly divide the bok choy, bell peppers, and bean sprouts among the 4 parchment packets. Season the vegetables with 1 tablespoon sesame-ginger marinade. Place a salmon fillet on top of the vegetables and season with the black pepper and an additional tablespoon of the marinade.

  • Fold the top half of the parchment over the fish, and overlap small folds along the open edge to seal. Brush each packet with olive oil. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until the parchment paper puffs up.

  • Transfer the parchment packets to plates. Carefully cut the packets open, avoiding the hot steam, and serve.
