This recipe is for Sea Bass in a Bag or, as the French call it, "en Papillote”. Drop this phrase in to impress someone special It’s really simple to make and cooks in 15-20 minutes – perfect for a quick but stylish meal for two. You simply place a seasoned sea bass with some ginger and spring onion on foil, wrap it up into a parcel, pour in a little white wine, bake it and serve it with a simple, light Chinese sauce that takes minutes to make.


  • 1 piece fresh root ginger
  • 5 spring onions
  • 1/3 red chilli (optional)
  • 75 milliliters Knorr Chicken Stock (made from Knorr Chicken Stock Pot, diluted according to packet instructions)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (plus extra for oiling foil)
  • 50 milliliters soy sauce (or reduced salt soy sauce, to your taste)
  • 10 sprigs fresh coriander
  • Knorr Fish Stock Cube (small amount of)
  • whole sea bass (1 kg approx, scaled and gutted)

    1. Pre-heat the oven to 220°C/Gas Mark 7.
    2. First prepare the sauce for the sea bass. Peel and finely chop two-thirds of the root ginger. Cut two of the spring onions into fine, long shreds. Very finely chop a third of the red chilli, starting from the base, rather than the top, to avoid the hot seeds. In a bowl, mix together the chopped ginger, spring onion, chilli, Knorr Chicken Stock and 1 tbsp olive oil. Add in a little soy sauce at a time, tasting as you go, until you’re happy with the flavour. Add in 4 sprigs of fresh coriander and set aside until required.
    3. I like to season my fish with a Knorr Stock Cube. I think it gives a better flavour than traditional seasoning. Simply crumble a small piece of the Knorr Fish Stock Cube into a small bowl, add in the remaining olive oil and mix together to form a paste, making sure to thoroughly dissolve the stock cube in the olive oil. Using your fingers, spread the paste inside the sea bass  and also use the paste to coat the outside of the fish on both sides.
