- In a small bowl, combine lime juice, coconut milk and fish sauce. Set aside.
- Cut 4 x 25x25cm pieces of foil and 4 x 15x15cm pieces of baking paper. Place 1 piece of baking paper on top of 1 piece of foil. Top with 1 salmon fillet and 1 piece of lemongrass. Drizzle over a quarter of the coconut mixture and sprinkle with a quarter of the chilli. Fold up sides and ends of foil to enclose filling. Repeat to make 3 more parcels.
