“This recipe is one that Giada De Laurentiis prepared for a wedding that was televised on Food Network. The guests went crazy over the recipe when I was watching it, so I thought I would share it with all of you. This recipe would also be wonderful with any firm white fish, such as swordfish or tuna etc. I bet it would be great with haddock or flounder too.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut 4 12" square pieces of aluminum foil.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400.
  3. Working with 1 foil sheet at a time, place the foil sheets on the work surface.
  4. Place 1 1/2 cups of spinach in the center of each foil sheet.
  5. Top with a sea bass fillet.
  6. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of ginger and 1/2 teaspoon of garlic, then drizzle 2 tablespoons of Marsala, 2 teaspoons of soy sauce, and 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil over the fish and spinach.
  7. Gather the foil sheets over the fish. Fold in the foil edges, and pinch tightly to seal.
  8. Place the foil packages on a heavy large baking sheet.
