Steamed Cod En Papillote - Right 4 All Types

Cod is an across the board beneficial, even for every secretor type! Why not take advantage of the health benefits? This traditional French preparation “en papillote” or “in parchment” is a great way to capture all the flavors of the fish and infuse it with herbaceous vibrance from ginger and garlic.

[ Serves 2 ]


  • 2 cod fillets (about 8 oz)
  • 10 cloves garlic, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 3 oz fresh ginger, peeled and cut into thin matchsticks
  • The zest of 2 lemons
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • A pinch of sea salt
  • Cilantro leaves, for garnish


  1. Preheat your oven to 350º F.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, mix together the garlic, ginger and lemon zest with a pinch of salt and allow it to rest for a couple of minutes. Add the olive oil and mix well.
  3. Place the cod fillet skin side down (if it has skin) on a large sheet of parchment paper. Spoon the ginger and garlic mixture over the fish.
  4. Fold the paper in half over the fish so edges meet. Create a seam by folding the edge onto itself a few times. Fold the edges on each side of the fish at an angle to block any liquid from leaking through. Place the parchment paper in a layer of aluminum foil and seal.
  5. Place the fish in the oven and bake for 20 minutes. Garnish with cilantro and serve!

Serving suggestions: This cod pairs perfectly with white or brown rice and steamed vegetables. Pick the ones best for your blood type and enjoy!
