Keto, Paleo, Whole30 Quick Cajun Shrimp Foil Packets November 6, 2019

These Quick Cajun Shrimp Foil Packets are lifesaver for busy life. Not only are they super tasty, but they can be whipped up in 15-20 minutes. It doesn’t get much better than that! Well maybe it does…..they are also Whole30, Paleo and Keto compliant. Healthy never looked so good.

This meal is one that I crave, because it feels like comfort food and clean up is minimal. In addition to cooking in the oven, you can also add to the grill or smoker.

Each Cajun Shrimp Foil Packet is filled with shrimp, asparagus, zucchini, squash and red bell peppers. Before add this mixture to each foil packet, I toss in olive oil along with my famous Cajun seasoning that takes this recipe to a new level.

This recipe is so versatile. Feel free to mix it up and add any of your favorite vegetables, and protein option to make your own version that will please you. Also, if you are serving a crowd, simply double the recipe and you are good to go!

Can you marinate the shrimp for the Cajun Shrimp Foil Packets?

100% YES! It will probably be even better! I will always marinate if I have time, but sometimes life get super busy and I skip that step. Don’t worry, it will taste good either way?

How to marinate the Cajun Shrimp: Place 2 1/2 tbsp olive oil, 1/2 of the Cajun seasoning and the shrimp in a gallon size baggie. Marinate 6-18 hours. You want to make sure that you save the other half of the Cajun seasoning to go on top of the veggies.
