{ Healthy Low Country Boil – On the Grill! }

Boiling seafood and veggies takes healthy foods and turns them into salty little monsters! Since seafood boils are so popular in the south, I wanted to find a way to enjoy those same flavors without all the bloating due to sodium.  One of my favorite things to do in the summer is throw a whole bunch of healthy proteins and veggies onto the grill, so let’s get started on this recipe y’all!

Serve it  with { Easy Peasy Peanut Butter Cup Icebox Pie } to cool things down after dinner.

For four:

  • 2 ears corn
  • 1 lb shrimp – peeled, deveined
  • 2 links chicken or turkey sausage – low sodium if available
  • 3 C red potatoes
  • 2 green bell peppers
  • 1 onion
  • 2 T creole or cajun seasoning (salt free optional)
  • 3 T olive oil
  • 1 T salt
  • 1 T cracked black pepper

1) Chop all veggies, corn and potatoes into bite-size pieces. Coat veggies and shrimp in olive oil, creole seasoning, salt and pepper and toss in a large mixing bowl or large rimmed baking pan.  Marinate in fridge for 4-6 hours.

2) Skewer bell pepper and onion together. Skewer potatoes together. Skewer corn together, as pictured. Skewer shrimp together.

3) Heat grill to medium and rub with oil.  Place skewers and sausage links on grill. Shrimp will only need about 3 minutes each side. Potatoes and sausage will take the longest, so place them on the areas of the grill that get the most heat. Flip skewers once  after about 10 minutes of grilling. Test sausage with meat thermometer. Potatoes should be fork tender.
