What’s great about foil pack meals is that they are very flexible. You don’t even need a recipe for it, it’s basically just tossing together vegetables and meat that goes well together. I would say it’s every customizable, you can add whatever you feel like eating. I did not even have to shop for these ingredients, I just made use of what I have in the fridge, toss them together, wrapped them in a foil then grilled them.
This can even be baked in the oven if you don’t want to fire up your grill. Since its summer, and opening the oven is the last thing I want to do, I opted to grill it, which has always been my preference. This is a fool-proof recipe, how could you mess up something as easy as this? Look at how delicious it looks like, I couldn’t ask for better lunch on a sunny weekend like today. Don’t skip the dipping sauce, it absolutely brings out the taste of all those grilled vegetables and the shrimp. Let’s get started!
