  2. Dissolve the coconut in 120ml (4fl.oz) hot water. Put a salmon fillet in the middle of the oiled side of each piece 
  3. of foil. Raise the edges to create a bowl, then divide the lime zest, lemongrass, chilli, soy sauce and coconut liquid between each parcel. Scrunch the foil to make sealed parcels.
  4. Put the parcels on a tray and bake for 12-15 minutes.
  5. If cooking on the bonfire, put the parcels in the embers and cook for 15 minutes. Serve in the foil parcels or plate up with lime wedges and rice.
