Asian Cod En Papillote

Photography by Angie Norwood Browne


Asian Cod En Papillote


4 (4 ounce) portions of Ling Cod

4 cups assorted Asian greens, such as Bok Choy, Choy Sum, or Mustard Greens

1 bunch Bunashimeji mushrooms, separated

1 bunch Golden Enoki mushrooms, separated

¼ cup sake, divided

¼ cup mirin, divided




Preheat oven to 450°F. Cut 4 pieces of parchment paper, each about 18 inches wide. Fold each piece in half crosswise. On one side of each parchment piece place one portion of cod. Add 1 cup of greens to each portion, nestling the greens around each piece of fish. Divide mushrooms evenly among each parchment and drizzle each one with 1 tablespoon of sake and 1 tablespoon of mirin. Season everything with salt and pepper.


Fold the parchment over the fish. Seal the opening by creating small folds along the open edge, starting at one corner and finishing at the opposite corner. Tuck the final crease under the pouch to hold in place. Bake pouches on a rimmed baking sheet for 10 minutes. Cut the parchment pouches open being careful not to burn yourself on the escaping steam.

About anbphoto

I never thought I'd start a blog because I'm not a writer. I am a Southern Catholic girl, a commercial food Photographer and an avid gardener. I have always wanted to journal my garden; growing food (fruit, herbs and vegetables), photographing ingredients from earth to plate and sharing the recipes I love. Someone suggested that I forget about all the writing and simply share my photographs and recipes. Perfect! My blog is an exploration of home gardening and cooking, so here is a little history of me and how "Stray Cats and Blackberries" came about. Born and raised in Alabama, my love for food lies in Southern cuisine. I learned early on that life is a party revolving around friends and family sharing food and wine. Backyard Summer bbqs, black eyed peas and collard greens on New Year's Day or ham and chocolate on Easter are just a few favorite Southern traditions I love sharing. I became fascinated with gardening when my husband and I bought our first house. I am a mother, a wife and someone who appreciates the little treasures and traditions in life. My garden started as an empty parking lot behind a Mom & Pop grocery store that my husband and I bought and renovated into a photography studio. While my husband put on his carpenter pants I put on my gardening gloves. Thirteen dumpsters at three tons each and nearly three years later I had a plantable space to sew seeds. I have been a food photographer and gardener for over 20 years and love the idea of merging my passions by growing food, photographing my harvest and sharing recipes with you. Enjoy
