Expert Tips

Salmon contains a fat that has heart-protective benefits, omega-3 fatty acids. Baking your dinner in foil means minimal cleanup after dinner.

Directions

  • 1 Heat gas or charcoal grill. In 1-quart saucepan, heat broth to boiling over high heat. Stir in rice. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 5 minutes or until most of broth is absorbed. Stir in carrots.
  • 2 Meanwhile, cut 2 (18x12-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil; spray with cooking spray. Place fish fillet on center of each sheet. Sprinkle with lemon-pepper seasoning; top with chives. Arrange lemon slices over fish.
  • 3 Spoon rice mixture around each fish fillet. Bring up 2 sides of foil over fish so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again, allowing space for heat circulation and expansion. Fold other sides to seal.
  • 4 Place packets on grill. Cover grill; cook over low heat 16 to 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily with fork. To serve, cut large X across top of each packet; carefully fold back foil to allow steam to escape.
