Paper Bag-Steamed Miso Butter Fish with Sweet Potato Wedges

  • Family Friendly
  • Healthy
  • One Pot

This effortless technique of cooking in a paper parcel gently steams fish for a delightfully tender result. A miso-enriched butter, earthy shiitake mushrooms and crispy sweet potato dial things up without taking over the delicate flavour of the fish.




Roast Sweet Potato

Preheat oven to 200°C fan-forced. Remove butter from fridge and allow to soften. Peel and cut sweet potato into wedges and place on a large baking tray lined with baking paper. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt. Roast for 20 minutes or until just tender (you will need to take the tray out halfway through cooking to add the fish parcels).



Prepare Vegetables

Trim ends from baby bok choy and cut into 4cm pieces. Trim ends from spring onion and cut in half. Cut halves into matchsticks.



Make Miso Butter

Place miso paste, butter and mirin in a small bowl and mix until well combined.



Prepare Fish

Cut 2 x 30cm-long rectangles of baking paper and place on a clean benchtop. Place a fish fillet on each square. Divide shiitake mushrooms, baby bok choy and ½ the spring onion between parcels. Divide miso butter between parcels and drizzle each parcel with 2 teaspoons water.



Fold and Cook Fish

Bring two sides of the paper to the centre and fold over twice to seal. Roll ends to enclose. Remove sweet potato tray from oven and make space for fish parcels. Add fish parcels to the tray and bake for 12–15 minutes or until fish is just cooked through and sweet potato is crispy.



Plate Up

Remove fish and sweet potato from oven and set aside for 2 minutes to allow fish to continue to steam. Transfer parcels to plates and top with remaining spring onion. Serve with sweet potato wedges.
