  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill for indirect cooking as directed by manufacturer.
  • 2
    In small bowl, place rice and water; let soak 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in second small bowl, stir together pineapple, onion, cilantro and lime juice.
  • 3
    After rice has soaked 10 minutes, drain off water. Stir in beans.
  • 4
    Cut 4 (24-inch-long) sheets of 18-inch-wide heavy-duty foil. Fold each in half crosswise to make 4 (18x12-inch) pieces of foil.
  • 5
    Spoon one-fourth of rice onto each piece of foil, mounding rice in center. Top each mound of rice with 1 salmon fillet. Sprinkle each with dash chili powder. Top each with pineapple salsa.
  • 6
    To make each packet, bring up 2 sides of foil so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again, allowing space for heat circulation and expansion. Fold other sides to seal.
  • 7
    Place packets sealed-seam-side up on unheated side of grill. Cover grill; cook 8 minutes. Turn packets; cover grill and cook 8 minutes longer. Turn packets seam-side-up; remove packets from grill. Place packets on individual serving plates. Carefully open packets to allow steam to escape.

Expert Tips

  • Salmon is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids which play a crucial role in brain function, normal growth and development, and may reduce the risk of heart disease.
  • Soaking the rice helps to soften it so it cooks more quickly, and provides extra moisture inside the packet to help everything steam.
