  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Place each of the cod fillets on a large piece of baking paper and divide the spinach and yellow pepper between them.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the garlic, ginger, lime juice and olive oil and season well. Spoon the dressing over each piece of fish. Fold up each baking paper parcel tightly, place on a baking tray and bake for 25-30 mins, until the fish is cooked through and the spinach has wilted.
  3. Meanwhile, boil the rice for 15 mins until tender. Drain and serve with the fish parcels, garnished with the coriander and lime wedges.
