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

Wash produce before use


Prep the leek; cook the rice

Heat the oven to 400°F.
  • Trim the root ends from the leek; cut the leek in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons. Soak the half-moons in a medium bowl of cold water, stirring occasionally to loosen any dirt, and allow the dirt to settle at the bottom. Skim the leek from the surface of the water and pat dry.
In a small sauce pot over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the leek, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the recado spice blend and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
Add the red rice and 1 cup [1½ cups] lightly salted water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed, 25 to 30 minutes.
While the rice cooks, prepare the parchment packets.


Assemble the parchment packets

Prep and cook instructions are almost identical for all fish options.
  • Thinly slice half the lemon; cut half into wedges for garnish. [Thinly slice 1 lemon; cut 1 lemon into wedges.]
  • Pat the fish dry with a paper towel; season lightly with salt and pepper.
Lay the parchment paper sheets side by side. Divide the fish between the 2 [4] sheets (skin side down for the trout or salmon). Top the fish with the lemon slices and drizzle each with 1 teaspoon oil. 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 remaining ingredients.


Prep the remaining ingredients; finish the rice

  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions.
  • Cut away the core from the tomato; finely chop the tomato.
Remove the cooked rice from the heat and stir in the scallions and tomato; cover to keep warm.


Open the fish packets, being careful of any venting steam, and transfer the fish to individual plates. Drizzle the caper vinaigrette over the fish, spoon the rice alongside, and serve with the lemon wedges.
