Salmon foil Pack dinner

 Salmon Foil Pack Dinner:

This is our first time attempting Fish or Rice with our foil packs,
We started with criss cross foil in 4 layers. I added 3/4 C. of minute
rice to the bottom with a sprinkle of salt and a teaspoon of butter.
Then I layered
Asparagus spears
julienned bell peppers and carrots
2 green onions
We added salt and pepper to the veggies and another small amount
of butter.
I then added the salmon with salt, pepper, thyme, herbs de provance
and about 2 teaspoons of butter.
We put lemon slices over the top and sealed up all but one side.
We added 3/4 cup of water to the pouch and sealed up the last side!

Kent cooked it on the coals for 20 Min. he did NOT turn it, the sealing of the pouch was able to steam the fish perfectly!
Best foil pack dinner ever!!
