The easiest grilled shrimp foil packet dinner ever! Just marinate, wrap in foil & grill. No messy cleanup, great for home or camping & ready in 30 minutes.
You bet! Each ingredient packs a powerful nutritional punch. The zucchini provides fiber, folates, Vitamins A & C and potassium. Tomatoes add additional fiber, vitamin C and the all important antioxidants. All these benefits contribute to lowering lower blood pressure, reducing cholesterol and minimizing the risk of certain cancers. Add shrimp to the mix, which is an excellent source of protein, low in fat and high in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties and you've got a win-win dinner!
When preparing over an open fire on a camping trip, add a polenta patty or cooked quinoa or cauliflower to the bottom of the packet before adding the shrimp and vegetables. If preparing in your backyard, I love to pour this garlicky combination of shrimp and vegetables over a nice dish of pasta.
Of course! One of the beauties of these foil packets is the ability to make them ahead of time. Just prepare, fold in foil and store in your refrigerator or a cooler until ready to cook.
I like to use heavy duty foil to make sure the packet is secure and doesn't leak. You can also use regular foil but double it up to make it stronger.
As the food cooks, steam forms, and causes the packets to swell. This helps to cook the contents evenly and, since it traps the heat inside, it aids in cutting the cooking time.
