Ingredients

  • 6 ounces raw large shrimp, peeled and deveined with tails removed
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons chopped garlic (I substituted 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic)
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 6 ounces fully cooked chicken sausage (about 2 links)
  • 1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 1 cup thin half-moon slices of zucchini
  • 1 cup corn kernels (frozen, canned or fresh)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro (I used parsley instead)
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning, or more to taste (I used Old Bay seasoning instead)

Instructions

  • Preheat grill to medium high heat.
  • In a large bowl, combine the shrimp, lemon juice, garlic and pepper. Toss well to coat.
  • Slice the sausage into coins and add to the bowl with the shrimp. Add all the remaining ingredients and mix well.
  • Place the mixture on the center of a large piece of foil. Cover with another large piece of foil. Fold the edges together creating a well sealed packet.
  • With the grill cover closed, grill the packet for 15 - 20 minutes, or until the shrimp and vegetables are cooked through and tender.

Oven Alternative:

  • Place the packet on a cookie sheet and bake in a preheated 425F degree oven for about the same amount of time (about 15 - 20 minutes), or until the vegetables are cooked through and tender. 

Recipe Notes

The only ingredient with points in this low calorie shrimp boil recipe is the sausage, so the points will vary depending on the kind of sausage you use.
