This is a brilliant way to cook fish and you can use any white fish variety, such as river cobbler, coley or pollock. Trout works well, too. This recipe calls for baking, which keeps the fish juicy and succulent for a lovely midweek meal. 

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put the rice in a large pan with the cinnamon stick and half the chilli. Cover with water and cook following the packet instructions.
  2. Meanwhile, finely chop the remaining chilli half. Tear off 4 large pieces of nonstick baking paper and arrange a fish fillet in the middle of each. Top with 2 lemon slices, a sprig of dill and the chopped chilli. Fold up the paper to make tightly sealed parcels and then transfer to a baking tray. Cook for 8 minutes or until the fish is opaque.
  3. Stir the beetroot, walnuts and chopped dill through the cooked rice and spoon into a serving bowl; discard the chilli half. Carefully unwrap the fish parcels and serve with the rice.
