Need more seafood in your life? Try this simple cajun shrimp foil packet. Easy clean up with all the flavor!

We caught these shrimp in Whitter, Alaska and omg they were good! I’ll be honest I did not love twisting off their heads but I do love knowing where my protein comes from. Speaking of that, the veggies were supplied by a local farmer, who delivers farm fresh produce right to your door. How cool is that?!

Shrimp and veggies wrapped in foil doesn’t get much easier  and there’s no mess! This recipe is fool proof, even if you have zero grilling skills.

Shrimp Foil Packet Nutrition Info:

Shrimp: Shrimp is a high protein, low-calorie, low-fat food but only when you prepare the seafood without added breading or fat. Shrimp also provides heart-healthy EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids. Shrimp does provide cholesterol, but very little fat and saturated fat. In 2015, the nutrition experts who develop USDA Dietary Guidelines removed the specific limit for cholesterol.

Zucchini: High source of potassium and Vitamin C! Is low in calories and carbs.

Asparagus: High in Vitamin K and Folate! It even has 2 grams of protein per serving.

Corn: has a sad reputation of proving empty calories but I am here to tell you it’s high in fiber, is a slow digesting carb (keeping you full) and has antioxidants!
