Fashionable Food Friday: Shrimp Fajita Foil Packs

Your taste buds must be screaming ‘food’ at the current moment and with your tummy growling – you thinking – “what am I going to eat?” Well, because Chef Linda always sorts you out, look no further as today’s dish is Shrimp Fajita Foil Packs. This tasty and exquisite dish will make you and your taste buds BFF’S!

Your Ingredients list is as follows:

2 large peppers, sliced 1/2 thick
1 large onion, sliced 1/2 thick
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon chile powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Kosher salt
1 1/4 extra-large peeled and deveined shrimp, tails removed
2 limes, halved
Twelve tortillas
Salsa and chopped avocado for serving (optional)

Got everything? Now, here is how you prepare it:

Remember your special equipment should be an 18 inch wide heavy duty foil. 

Prepare a grill for medium-high heat.

Toss together the pepper, onion, oil, chile powder, cumin and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a very large bowl.

Tear two 18 inch pieces of the 18 inch wide heavy duty foil. Spread the vegetable mixture on one piece of foil, leaving a few inches of exposed foil as a border. Arrange the shrimp on top of the vegetables in a single layer. Squeeze the limes over the mixture. Top with the remaining piece of foil, lining up the edges. Fold the edges and crimp tightly to make a leak-proof packet.

Tear two 18 inch pieces of 18 inch wide heavy duty foil. Arrange the tortillas, overlapping slightly, on one piece of foil. Top with the remaining piece of foil, lining up the edges. Fold the edges and crimp tightly to make another packet.

Put the shrimp packet on the grill, close the grill lid and cook 12 minutes (do not turn the packet over). The packet should puff up and look like a pillow. Slide from the grill onto a baking sheet using tongs. Set aside and let rest while you heat up the tortillas. Put the tortilla pack on the grill and cook until warm, about 2 minutes per side.

Carefully open the shrimp packet (hot steam will escape). The shrimp should be pink and cooked through and the onions and peppers just tender. Serve with the warm tortillas, salsa and avocado if desired.

Now, all that you have to do is send your taste buds on a Shrimpcoaster Ride. Enjoy!
