  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 200°C. Place spring onion matchsticks in a bowl of iced water. Set aside for 10 mins to curl. Drain.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, cut four 30cm x 45cm pieces of baking paper. Place on a clean work surface. Place 1 barramundi portion in the centre of each sheet. Sprinkle with ginger, garlic, sliced spring onion and chilli, if using. Combine the soy sauce, wine, vinegar and oil in a small jug. Drizzle evenly over the barramundi.
  3. Step 3

    Bring 2 long sides of paper to the centre and fold over twice to seal. Roll up ends to enclose. Place on a baking tray. Bake for 10 mins or until the barramundi is just cooked through.
  4. Step 4

    Meanwhile, cook the choy sum in a steamer over a saucepan of simmering water for 1 min or until bright green. Quickly use tongs to transfer the choy sum to a bowl of iced water to refresh.
