Ingredients

  • 2 rice noodle nests
  • 1 large carrot, cut into thin strips
  • 100g mangetout or sugar snaps (or both), halved lengthways
  • 1 tsp sunflower oil/sesame oil
  • Grated zest and juice 1 lime, plus wedges to serve
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2cm piece fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Thai red curry paste (we used Bart, from Ocado and Waitrose)
  • Pinch of sugar
  • 2 sustainable salmon or trout fillets
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 4 spring onions, thinly sliced, to serve

You will also need

  • 2 x 25cm squares compostable baking paper and foil

Method

  1. Heat/light the barbecue and spread the coals in an even layer. Soak the noodles in boiled water from the kettle until softened but not tender. Drain, then toss in a bowl with the veg and oil.
  2. Mix the zest and juice with the garlic, ginger, curry paste and sugar. Add half to the noodles/veg and toss to coat.
  3. Lay one sheet of foil on the worktop, then line with the baking paper. Put half the noodles/veg in the middle, then top with a salmon fillet. Spread the salmon with half the remaining dressing, sprinkle with sesame seeds, then seal the parcel. Repeat with the remaining foil/baking paper, noodles/ veg, salmon and dressing.
  4. Put the parcels on the BBQ grill and cook, lid down, for 10-12 minutes – the noodles will become tender and the fish will be lightly steamed. Open the parcels and serve with the sesame seeds, spring onions and extra lime wedges.
