I came up with this low-carb idea when temperatures sizzled this week. When it’s too hot to turn on the oven? Turn up the heat outside on the grill and make foil packet dinners!
I used 2 layers of sturdy aluminum foil. In the center, I included:
- 4-5 large uncooked shrimp
- 1/2 cup green beans (parboiled/partially cooked. I put parboiled potatoes in the rest of my family’s foil packets)
- 3 small pieces corn (not low carb, but it was a real treat! To cut the corn small, chop uncooked cobs into three, then halve each third down the middle. Three cobs made enough to feed four people.)
- 5-7 thick slices of garlic sausage (or your favourite sausage)
Melt 2 tbsp melted butter with 1/2 tsp garlic powder, salt and pepper (optional: add Old Bay Seasoning, cayenne, parsley or cajun seasoning for a kick!) then pour over your pile of ingredients. Fold edges of foil to the center and seal it tight.
Cook on hot grill for 12-15 minutes, flipping half way through. Serve with additional butter and spices, if desired.
