We loved the Pesto Shrimp & Veggie Packets from the other day so much we decided to have them again tonight but I changed things up a bit. OMG these are sooooo good... all the yummy stuff from a restaurant shrimp pasta dish without the heavy useless pasta. Shrimp are a great protein source too. A four ounce serving of shrimp supplies 23 grams of protein.
Shelly's Shrimp Venezia Packet
7 Raw Shrimp, peeled & deveined and tails removed
1/2 cup Fresh Spinach Leaves
1/4 of a Small Onion, sliced
1/2 Small Zucchini, sliced
3 Artichoke Hearts, chopped
2 Tablespoons Bruschetta Sauce (I used Trader Joe's but Contadina/Buitoni make one. Find it in the fresh pasta section)
1 Tablespoon Pesto Sauce (I used Trader Joe's but Contadina/Buitoni make one. Find it in the fresh pasta section)
1/2 teaspoon Oregano
1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
a few twists of Black Pepper
Peel and devein shrimp. Ingredients listed are for one packet multiply it for how many packets you are making. Place all ingredients in center of a piece of heavy duty foil (if you are using the $1 store stuff double it)
Fold the foil over and seal each packet. BBQ 15 minutes in covered grill. Open packets carefully (steam burns are not fun) and mix with a fork lightly before serving.
Highlights of the day:
* It's suppose to be cooling down. It was 102 today and woot only forecast for 100 tomorrow. Uggh. My walks have been too toasty but I did sweat a pound off this week.
* Conversation my Mum and I had this am (I should mention my Mum wears a hearing aid) but this will explain a lot about me.
Me (reading the horoscope outloud): Mars is in Uranus.
Mum: What?! Moths are in your Anus?
