How to Make:

  1. Place the water and saffron in a heatproof bowl. Set aside for 10 minutes to infuse. Process the saffron mixture, parsley, mint, coriander, lime juice and oil in a food processor until finely chopped.

Repeat with remaining foil, fish and herb mixture. Fold up to enclose fish. Preheat a barbecue grill on high. Add fish parcels and cook for 10-12 minutes or until the fish is cooked through.
