When you need a quick and easy weeknight dinner, you probably turn to one-pan meals. But I'm here to sing the praises of foil packs. Simply layer ingredients on sheets of foil, wrap them up into neat little packages, and then cook them on the grill or in the oven. And the best part? Cleanup is as easy as balling up that foil and tossing it in the trash.

This recipe is an updated twist on the classic fish en papillote. Just layer potatoes (that have been parboiled), mozzarella, raw shrimp, asparagus, and a garlic cream sauce on top of foil sheets and then fold the sheets into packets. (If you're worried about how to do this, the author has a super-helpful video tutorial in the recipe post!)

Place your packets on a baking tray (or directly on grill grates, if you're using the grill) and bake in the oven for 10 minutes or so. Then all you have to do is open up the packets and dig in! Between the perfectly cooked shrimp and the cheesy, creamy potatoes, this meal is a total weeknight win.
