  • 12 baby red potatoes, scrubbed clean
  • 6 (18x15-inch) pieces of heavy-duty aluminum foil
  • 2 medium zucchini, sliced
  • 36 grape tomatoes (about 1 dry pint)
  • 3 ears of corn, shucked, kernels cut off or 2 cups frozen corn kernels
  • 1½-2 pounds (26-30 count) raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil or butter, cut into 6 pieces, optional

cooking methods

  • Grill


  1. Pierce potatoes in several spots with a fork; place on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave on HIGH 4-5 minutes or until just fork tender (do not overcook). Cut potatoes into quarters; salt and pepper as desired. Divide among pieces of foil.
  2. Add remaining vegetables to foil. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon Citrus Herb Seasoning over vegetables. Top with shrimp. Sprinkle shrimp with remaining 1 tablespoon Citrus Herb Seasoning. Drizzle with oil or top with butter, if desired. Bring together 2 sides of foil; seal edges, making a ½-inch fold. Fold again, allowing space for heat circulation. Fold each side to seal.
  3. Prepare grill to medium heat. Place foil packets on grill. Grill, turning occasionally, until shrimp is opaque in color and reaches 145°F on an instant-read food thermometer, about 15 minutes.

Makes 6 servings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great one-dish oven option I made this at a freezer meal workshops and needed to make it soon since I had the fresh veggies already. But we haven't gotten out the grill yet this season. So, I put it all in a 9x13 pan and covered with foil. I put in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes. Perfect!
