Matcha may be a popular ingredient for desserts, but have you ever tried it with fish? Here's a delicious fish dish you can make using matcha. 

How to Make Wild Caught Cod With Matcha And Veggies In Parchment


  • 1 Tbsp. Sugimoto Organic Daily Matcha
  • 2 medium-sized fillets of wild-caught cod
  • 4 asparagus spears, diced
  • 2 small red potatoes, diced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 green onions, diced
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh Lemon Juice
  • 2 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Step 1: Preheat the Oven

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Step 2: Prepare the Fish

Wash and dry fillets; place on a plate. Squeeze lemon juice over and drizzle tops with 1 Tablespoon olive oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper on each side.

Step 3: Prepare the Vegetables

Wash vegetables and dice into small pieces; place vegetables in a medium-size bowl; Add Matcha, 1 Tablespoon olive oil, ½ tsp salt, ¼ tsp. pepper and mix well.

Step 4: Combine the Vegetable Mixture With the Fish

Place each fillet in the middle of the parchment paper. Divide the vegetable mixture on top of each fillet.

Step 5: Create the fish parcels 

Taking the left and right edges of the parchment paper, pull each edge up to meet at the top like a tent. 

Fold sides down together in ½ to 1-inch increments until you reach the fillet; staple the last fold and fold down flat against the packet. Now, take the other two ends and fold them each the same way toward the sides of the fillet; press down firmly on all folds, making sure no air can escape or get into the inside. These sides can be stapled as well.

Step 6: Bake 

Place the two packets on a baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. Be careful of the hot steam when opening the packets. 

Step 8: Serve 

Place each packet on a serving plate. Slice or cut open the top and pull back to enjoy the contents. Serve right in the packet or take out and serve on the plate.
