1 Combine prepared fruits in a bowl. Tear off 4 x 20cm foil squares and line with smaller squares of baking paper. Spoon fruit mixture into the centre of each square centre. Fold foil and baking paper to enclose filling and make a parcel.
2 Heat barbecue. Place foil parcels on barbecue and cook for 5 minutes or until fruit is hot. Place unopened parcels on serving plates (allowing each person to open their own parcel) with a scoop of lemon sorbet.
Serve as part of this three-course meal for four, cooked entirely on the barbecue!
