Recipe created by Haley Hughes, RD. 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 limited cooking skills.


1.Preheat grill, high heat; or if you don't have a grill, preheat over to 425 degrees F.
2.Toss shrimp in bowl of Cajun seasoning, until coated
3.In large sheet of foil add olive oil and all ingredients. Wrap up ingredients having it completely cover by foil.
4.Seal the foil packet closed and grill on 425 F for 12-15 minutes.

According to Haley Hughes, RD, of RD | Rx, this recipe provide loads of nutrients:

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!
