  • Squeeze juice from 1 lemon; mix with dressing. Pour half over fish in shallow dish; turn to coat both sides of each fillet. Refrigerate 15 min. to marinate. Refrigerate remaining dressing mixture for later use. Meanwhile, heat barbecue to medium heat.
  • Cut each of the remaining lemons into 4 slices. Remove fish from marinade; discard marinade. Place 8 lemon slices on barbecue grate; top with fish. Brush with some of the remaining dressing mixture. Grill 5 min.; turn.
  • Add remaining lemon slices and asparagus to barbecue. Grill 5 min. or until fish flakes easily with fork and asparagus is crisp-tender, brushing occasionally with remaining dressing mixture. Remove fish, lemon slices and asparagus from barbecue. Discard lemon slices under fish. Serve remaining lemon slices with fish and asparagus.


Prepare using other firm-fleshed fish fillets, such as cod or salmon.

How to Grill Vegetables

Serve with grilled fresh vegetables. Just toss your favourite vegetables, such as quartered red and green peppers or zucchini, cut lengthwise in half, with your favourite Kraft Dressing, using about 2 Tbsp. dressing for each cup of vegetables. Drain the vegetables, then add to the barbecue for the last 5 to 7 min. of the fish grilling time. Grill until tender, turning occasionally.
