Cajun Shrimp in Foil

This was delicious! This was the 3rd time I have made this dish. I make it as stated for my husband and me.

Loved the flavors and this is definitely going on meal rotation! For anyone seeking an alternative cooking method.

Loved this. Family did too. But it’s 100 degrees outside and turning on the oven or firing up the grill was more than I could face. I stir fried it. It was delish.
