Hello! Hello!

My doctors appointment went as expected yesterday!  The doctor said it’s slowly healing and I go back in two weeks. Thanks again for all of the well wishes.

As a pescatarian, I’m drawn to seafood dishes almost immediately… but there is something about summer that makes me long for beaches and shellfish.  The first few summers the Hubs and I were dating we spent our summers traveling to regional beaches and eating way too much food from the sea.  Looking back, it was a really carefree time in my life.  Because of those trips shellfish and summer go hand in hand in my mind.

Now of course we still travel… but these days there haven’t been as many lazy beach trips on the books.  (Not complaining though… I’ve had some amazing summer adventures.)   Because of the shift in our summer plans, I’ve been totally craving shellfish meals at home this summer.

I went to work and came up with a healthier, pescatarian twist on a low country shrimp bowl… my Healthy Grilled Shrimp in Foil recipe.

My version doesn’t have sausage or butter but that keeps it light and healthy, making it an easy weekday meal.

To add some extra vitamins I added some green zucchini to the packet, making it a well rounded meal without adding anything else.  The simplicity of the shrimp, potatoes and zucchini shine.

The flavor is incredible and comes from classic Old Bay seasoning, garlic, lemon and fresh parsley.  You don’t even miss the fat with those flavors.

The entire healthy Grilled Shrimp in Foil recipe is only 8 simple ingredients!  Can I get a WOOP-WOOP?

Bonus points for this being a foil packet recipe that you can put either on your grill or in the oven.  Because the entire meal is in one packet, clean up is so easy.  Jeesh… you can even make it in winter if you’d like!

The only catch is you do need to pre cook the potatoes in the microwave for a few minutes before they go in the foil packets. I tried cooking this many ways without that extra step and none of them worked. So make sure you look at the instructions.

You can even make the packets ahead of time and have them ready when 6 o’clock rolls around or guests arrive.

All around this fast, simple and healthy meal is one you will not be able to resist making on repeat.

As always, I’d love for you to try it yourself and let me know what you think.  Click over for the full recipe and to save this to your Pinterest board.

    I love foil packet dinners. And I had never had Old Bay Seasoning until I moved to southern MD, omg it’s amazing! I can’t believe I liked so long without it, lol. We still have yet to have a crab feast this year, which is one of my fav things to do here in the summer time.

    Oh I do miss having a grill so much! I swear it’s going to cave and get one soon! We just haven’t had the need since we moved! i’m all about some shrimp, especially this time of year!

      The best part about this recipe is you can make it in the oven!

    Ok this is so cool! I’ve seen people use this concept for camping, but I can imagine it would make grilling at home really easy too.
