  • Heat barbecue to medium heat.
  • Reserve 1/4 cup basil leaves; cut remaining basil into thin slices. Place zucchini on centres of 4 large sheets heavy-duty foil; top with fish, sliced basil and tomatoes. Drizzle with dressing. Fold to make 4 packets.
  • Grill 10 to 15 min. or until fish flakes easily with fork. Carefully open packets; top fish with reserved basil leaves. Serve with rice.

Make Ahead

Packets can be assembled ahead of time. Refrigerate up to 4 hours before grilling.


Prepare using any variety of flaky white fish, such as haddock or cod, adjusting the grilling time if necessary.


Prepare packets with parchment paper instead of the foil.

    I used Asian Sesame dressing it gave a great flavour. Also put cut up potatoes and fresh vegetables on the bottom of the foil and fish on top.
