Serves: 4

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cooking Time: 12 minutes

Difficulty: Easy

Comments

These are so easy to make. You can cook the packets in the oven or on the outdoor grill.

Ingredients

1 pound shrimp, raw (medium or large)

2 tablespoons pesto sauce (prepared)

2 tablespoons garlic, bottled minced

6 green onion(s) , chopped

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 cup couscous, dry

1 1/4 cups vegetable broth, reduced sodium

4 cups spinach, fresh baby

Preparation

Mix the pesto, garlic, olive oil and chopped onions in a small bowl. Remove the shells from the shrimp and clean and devein them. Pat shrimp dry with a paper towel. Cut 4 pieces of foil, each about 10 inches long. Place one quarter of the couscous in the center bottom of each piece of foil forming a strip with the couscous. Place the shrimp in a row on top of the couscous. Spoon equal amounts of pesto garlic mixture over each package of shrimp. Pour equal amounts of broth over each package. Wrap two of the sides of the foil together leaving a bubble inside for steam to accumulate and then bring the opposite two sides of foil up and fold together to seal each package. Place them on a baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for about 12 minutes. Remove from the oven. Arrange one cup of spinach over each plate. Top the spinach with the couscous and shrimp from each package and serve.
