Healthy Grilled Shrimp in Foil
My Healthy Grilled Shrimp In Foil recipe is a fast and fresh seafood dinner. Filled with Old Bay seasoned shrimp, red potatoes, zucchini, lemon, and fresh herbs this shrimp dinner idea is reminiscent of a classic Low Country Shrimp Boil but with a healthy twist.

In a large microwave safe bowl, microwave potatoes for 5-6 minutes until just tender They will finish cooking in the foil.. Pull out two large pieces of foil... about 18 inches long and spray cooking spray in the center. Stack half of the potatoes, zucchini, shrimp, and garlic in the middle of each piece of the foil. Drizzle each side with olive oil, half of the lemon, salt, pepper, and the old bay. Carefully toss.
Fold each foil packet by pulling the sides up and folding and then sealing the ends.
