Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup uncooked instant brown rice
  • 1/2 cup matchstick-cut carrots (from 10-oz bag)
  • 1/2 to 3/4 lb salmon fillets, cut into 2 serving pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • 2 lemon slices (1/4 inch thick)

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.
