This recipe calls for bonito, which is a Mediterranean fish similar to mackerel. The fish is wrapped in papyrus and baked in the sealed packets. This is an ideal way to cook fish as it seals in flavour and juices. Papyrus can be bought from art-suppliers for an authentic experience; alternatively, use a heavy (160 g) paper.
