Ingredients

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

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

Directions

  1. 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.
  2. Fold 4 (16 by-12-inch) parchment paper squares in 1/2 lengthwise.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Transfer the parchment packets to plates. Carefully cut the packets open, avoiding the hot steam, and serve.
