    Am I missing something. The nutrition guide says 889 mg of sodium. The recipe only calls for salt & pepper.? ?
    It sounds wonderful however that is a lot of sodium for the serving size of 1 packet.

    Fantastic!! This is always a winner in my house!!! Quick and easy and oh so good!!!

    Love this recipe and your brownies recipe!

    Kayti

    Would this be something you could prep the packets and just put in the oven each day?

      Layla

      Yes, you can prep in leave in the fridge for up to 48 hours or freeze.

    Kate

    Looks like red onion in pic with shrimp & zucc??? Do you put the foil pac direc on grill, no pan?

      Layla

      Yes, I add some red onion. You can add any veggies you’d like! Place the foil packs on a sheet pan or directly on the oven rack. I like to use a sheet pan to avoid spills.

    Frozen shrimps, is it best to thaw out before, or can the cooking time be adjusted, etc….
    thank you. always have frozen shrimps, or salmon on hand………. I may try it before getting the reply. your reply/comment will certainly help. Angie

      Layla

      I soak frozen shrimp in cold water for just 5 minutes. They thaw pretty fast. I wouldn’t recommend cooking frozen shrimp because it may make the shrimp chewy.
