Cajun Shrimp Foil Packets/Basket Fixen Dinner

Make Cajun Shrimp foil/stainless steel basket “fixen” dinner. Use corn on the cob, shrimp, spicy sausage and potatoes with chosen spices along with butter and onions. Nice in the summertime because they don’t heat up the house and no mess in the inside kitchen. Use foil or a stainless steel basket, for those trying to avoid aluminum foil. Aluminum exposure may be linked particularly to damage to brain cells resulting in memory loss.

Simple and tasty, even the pickest fish eaters will love it. It’s simply soy sauce and brown sugar marinade, with hints of lemon and garlic, are the perfect salty-sweet complement to rich salmon fillets.

2. In a small bowl, stir together soy sauce, brown sugar, water, and vegetable oil until sugar is dissolved. Place fish in a large resealable plastic bag with the soy sauce mixture, seal, and turn to coat. Add more brown sugar as needed,(sometimes I add about 1 tablespoon of flour with mix). Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

3. Preheat grill for medium heat.

4. Lightly oil grill grate. Place salmon on the preheated grill, and discard marinade. Cook salmon for 6 to 8 minutes per side, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
