1 Place a 50cm sheet of baking paper on top of a 50cm length of foil, and repeat process four times to make salmon parcels.
2 Preheat a barbecue with a lid to medium-high. Place asparagus, fennel, courgette noodles and salmon evenly on the centre of each sheet of baking paper. Drizzle each with 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Season with pepper. Fold edges of foil and baking paper to seal and form a parcel, tucking excess foil and paper underneath.
3 Onto barbecue hotplate, place parcels and close lid, barbecuing for 10–12 minutes (depending on thickness) until the salmon is cooked through. Transfer parcels to a board and stand for 2 minutes. Meanwhile, spray bread with oil and barbecue for a few minutes on each side until golden.

5 Garnish salmon with fennel fronds and spring onions. Serve with rocket salad, barbecued bread and lemon slices.
