Foodie Friday Grills Foil Packets

We’re back with another Fun Foodie Friday! The weather is heating up and it’s time to dust off those outdoor grills! Today, I’ve got an EASY foil packet dinner that takes no time at all! I really love making these foil packets because they’re so easily customizable. It’s rare for my kids to like the same vegetables at the same given time, so get your kids involved and let them fill their own packet!

I like to use two long sheets of foil placed on top of each other to make a “t.” This way you have enough room on each side to roll it up with spillage. Starting with your veggie (or veggies) lay those on the bottom with a drizzle of your favorite cooking oil (tonight I used avocado oil, but olive oil works great too!) A sprinkling of salt and thinly sliced lemon go on before your protein.

I had some frozen wild caught salmon fillets that I thawed and were seasoned with garlic, onion, paprika, salt and pepper. You can choose your favorite fish and your favorite seasonings. Even a marinade or sauce would work great in these! I topped the salmon with two more pieces of thinly sliced lemon.

Four packets ready to go to the grill! Preheat your grill and cook over medium heat.

These bad boys took TEN MINUTES! That’s it! Depending your protein, of course, it may take longer. If you’re using chicken or pork, check on it periodically. It was so nice to have dinner out on the picnic table in 30 minutes!

Happy grilling, y’all!
