Well Dined | Shrimp Packets with Mango Salsa

Here's a fun summer dish for camping, grilling, or even using the oven (which is what I did).  It's easy, fast, filling, and healthy.

Spray a sheet of aluminum foil with cooking spray (I used coconut oil) and raw shrimp, couscous, and a big handful of spinach.  Cook using your method of choice for about 10 minutes - steam will fill the foil packet and cook all the ingredients.

Open up the packets and add in a fresh salsa made with avocado, mango, tomato, red onion, and lime juice.  You can eat straight out of the packets, or transfer to a bowl.  Either way, this fresh dish is sure to please the whole family!

serves 4

cooking spray (coconut or olive oil is best, but vegetable oil is okay)
8 cups baby spinach
1 cup couscous
1 lb medium shrimp, shelled and deveined
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro, divided (I skipped this b/c I can't stand it)
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
3/4 tsp salt, divided
1 large mango, peeled and diced
1 medium avocado, diced
1 medium tomato, diced
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1/2 jalapeno chile, seeded and finely chopped (I skipped this, too)
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

Heat grill or oven to medium high (450 deg F).  Fold four 18-inch-long pieces of foil in half to crease; unfold and coat inside with cooking spray.

Place 2 cups spinach in center of 1 half of each piece of foil. Combine couscous with 1/4 cup water; divide evenly among packets, placing on top of spinach.  Combine shrimp, 1/4 cup cilantro, oil, and 1/2 tsp salt in a bowl (If you aren't using jalapeno, add black pepper).  Divide shrimp evenly among packets, placing next to couscous.

Fold foil to close and crimp edges to seal; place on grill or on a rimmed baking sheet in the oven; close lid; cook until packets are fully puffed, about 10 minutes.

Combine remaining 1/4 cup cilantro with remaining 1/4 tsp salt, mango, avocado, tomato, onion, jalapeno (or black pepper), and lime juice in a bowl.  Carefully cut foil to open; stir contents; garnish with salsa before serving.
