Ingredients

Keto Shrimp and Sausage Foil Packets

  • 1 lb jumbo shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 8 oz smoked sausage andouille or kielbasa
  • 1 large zucchini about 12 ounces
  • 4 oz bell pepper sliced
  • 1 oz red onion sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped

Cajun Marinade

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp butter melted
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp paprika smoked recommended
  • 1 tsp EACH: onion powder, dried oregano, salt
  • 1/2 tsp EACH: cayenne pepper, black pepper, dried thyme, dried parsley, and garlic powder

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400F. Cut 4 sheets of foil, about 12"x12".
  • Slice zucchini and smoked sausage into bite sized rounds or wedges.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine shrimp, sausage, zucchini, peppers, and onion.
  • Separately, whisk together the Cajun marinade ingredients (olive oil, melted butter, minced garlic, and spices).
  • Add marinade and cilantro to your shrimp/sausage/veggie mixture and toss to coat.
  • Divide mixture into four portions and place into the center of each sheet of foil. Fold and seal the foil.
  • Arrange keto foil packets on a sheet pan, and bake for 16-20 minutes, or until zucchini is tender and shrimp is cooked through.

Notes

  • These keto shrimp and sausage foil packs have a bit of heat to them; halve the cayenne pepper to keep things a little milder. For more heat, use spicy sausage, up the cayenne, or add a pinch of crushed red pepper.
  • I use tail-off shrimp so that it's easy to enjoy this recipe straight out of the foil packet, but you can leave the tails on if you prefer.
  • Be careful when opening the foil, as there will be steam inside.
