2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep the mushrooms

Heat the oven to 400°F.
  • Thinly slice the mushrooms.
  • Grate or peel and finely chop enough ginger to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions on the diagonal. Set aside half for the salad.
  • Measure 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] umami blend; set aside the rest for serving.
In a medium bowl, stir together the mushrooms, ginger, half the scallions, 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] umami blend, and 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil. Season with salt and pepper.


Assemble the parchment packets

Prep and cook instructions are almost identical for both fish options.
Lay the parchment paper sheets side by side. Divide the fish between the 2 [4] sheets (skin side down for the salmon) and season lightly with salt and pepper. Top the fish with the mushroom mixture. Working with 1 sheet at a time, bring 2 opposite sides of the parchment to the center and fold them together several times to create a tight seam. Fold up each end to form a tight seal.


Bake the parchment packets

Place the packets on a sheet pan, sealed sides up, and bake until the parchment is puffed and browned and the fish is tender when pierced with a skewer or sharp knife, 10 to 12 minutes.
While the fish cooks, prepare the mango-cucumber salad.


Make the mango-cucumber salad

  • Juice half the lime; cut half into wedges for garnish. [Juice 1 lime; cut 1 lime into wedges.]
  • Peel the cucumber, if desired; cut the cucumber in half lengthwise, then on the diagonal into ¼-inch-thick slices.
  • Trim the ends from the mango; cut away the peel, then cut the flesh away from the pit into halves. Thinly slice the halves crosswise.
In a medium bowl, stir together the sesame seeds, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lime juice, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil, and as many chile flakes as you like. Add the cucumber, mango, and remaining scallions and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Open the fish packets, being careful of any venting steam, and transfer the fish and mushrooms to individual plates. Spoon as much of the remaining umami blend as you like over the fish. Serve with the mango-cucumber salad and lime wedges.
