  • 1 Heat gas or charcoal grill. Cut 1 (24x18-inch) sheet of heavy-duty foil; spray with cooking spray. Layer coarsely chopped onion, bell pepper and tomatoes on center of sheet. Bring up 2 sides of foil over vegetables 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.

  • 3 Spray fish and grill basket that has locking top with cooking spray. Place fish in basket. Place on grill with vegetable packet. Rotate vegetable packet 1/2 turn. Cover grill; cook 8 to 12 minutes, turning fish once, until fish flakes easily with fork.
  • 4 Place fish on serving platter; keep warm. Cut large X across top of packet; carefully fold back foil to allow steam to escape. Add grilled vegetables and parsley to green onion mixture; toss. Spoon over fish. Serve with rice.
