Steps

Hide Images
  • 1
    Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Cut four 18x12-inch pieces of heavy-duty foil; spray each piece with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In large bowl, mix rice and broth; let stand about 7 minutes or until broth is almost absorbed. Stir in bell pepper and onions. Place 3/4 cup rice mixture on center of each sprayed foil piece. Top rice with salmon. Sprinkle each salmon fillet with 1/4 teaspoon salt; top with 2 tablespoons chutney and 1/4 cup pineapple chunks.
  • 3
    Fold foil over salmon and rice mixture so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again. Allow space on sides for circulation and expansion.
  • 4
    Cover and grill packets over medium heat 12 to 18 minutes, rotating packets 1/2 turn after about 6 minutes, until salmon flakes easily with fork. Place packets on plates. Cut large X across top of each packet; fold back foil.

  • Soaking the rice in broth before grilling the packets ensures the rice will be done at the same time as the salmon.
  • Open the foil packets carefully, keeping the opening pointed away from you. Very hot steam collects inside the packets during cooking and could scald you.
