Garlic Ginger Walleye in Papillote (in Parchment)

This delicious fish dinner cooks in the oven in parchment paper packets for easy cleanup.

4 servings
50 minutes, not including time to cook quinoa


  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons reduced sodium tamari
  • 4 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1 bunch (approx. 8 ounces) broccolini florets with trimmed stems
  • 4 (5-ounce) walleye fillets
  • 4 scallions, trimmed and chopped
  • ⅓ cup Thai basil chiffonade (cut into ribbons)
  • ½ teaspoon cracked black pepper (optional)


  1. Heat oven to 425 F.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the olive oil, tamari, minced ginger and minced garlic.
  3. Cut 4 large sheets of parchment paper (approx. 12 x 15 inches each). Spread ½ cup of quinoa on the bottom third of each of the papers. Leave 2 inches on the edges for sealing.
  4. Add broccolini to each paper.
  5. Add a fish fillet, scallions, Thai basil and the olive oil/tamari mixture.
  6. Tightly fold the packet closed so no steam will escape in cooking.
  7. Bake parchment packages in the oven on a baking sheet for 15 minutes or until fish is cooked through and broccolini are crisp-tender.
  8. Transfer the packets to serving plates and cut the packets open. Top with pepper if desired and serve immediately.
