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!
Shrimp Packets with Mango Salsa
adapted from Self
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.
