WHAT ARE FOIL PACKET DINNERS?

Foil packets have gained a lot of popularity in the past few years, but I have been eating them since I was a kid! My parents called them hobo dinners and we ate them when we went camping and occasionally at home too.

The basic concept of a dinner foil packet is that your whole dinner is put inside a pocket of foil and cooked.

The key to a successful dinner foil packet is to make sure to keep the food tightly inside the foil. This creates a great cooking environment for the meat and veggies inside!

There are endless ways to make a foil packet dinner and the end result is always yummy!

HOW TO MAKE KETO SHRIMP FOIL PACKETS

Once you get the hang of making foil packets the whole process will speed right by!

STEP ONE: PREPARE THE PRODUCE

The first step is to get the vegetables ready. Peel and slice the zucchini and summer squash. Go ahead and slice a lemon into 6 slices.  Set these all aside for now.

STEP THREE: FILL THE FOIL PACKETS

On each piece of aluminum foil put 6-7 pieces of zucchini and summer squash. Be sure to put the veggies in the center of the foil. Add some salt and pepper to the veggies.

Now put a handful of the shrimp mixture on the top of the veggies.

Put one slice of lemon on top of each pile of shrimp with a sprig of rosemary.

STEP FOUR: CLOSE THE FOIL PACKETS

It is time to close the Keto Shrimp Foil Packets up.

Start by folding up the sides of each foil packet. Then fold them down to seal create the foil seal.

Last fold up each end of the foil to completely seal the packet.

STEP FIVE: BAKE

I like to place my foil packets on a baking sheet. Place in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees F. You want the vegetables to be tender and the shrimp cooked thoroughly.

Remember if you decide to swap out any veggies they could take longer to cook.
