Kitchn’s Delicious Links column highlights recipes we’re excited about from the bloggers we love. Follow along every weekday as we post our favorites.

Here at Kitchn, you’ll frequently find us singing the praises of the foil pack dinner hack. These perfect little pouches make for a super easy clean-up so there’s more time to focus on the best part of dinner: eating. Whether you choose to bake, grill, or throw these guys over a campfire, they’ll be busting at the seams with flavor and you’re going to want to dig right in.

Follow these directions to a tee and there will be significantly fewer dirty dishes in your sink tonight: In a large bowl, toss together deveined shrimp, sliced sausage, zucchini, yellow squash, asparagus, red bell pepper chunks, olive oil, salt, pepper, and Cajun seasoning. Feel free to swap in whatever summer veggies you have in your fridge.

To assemble the packets, you’ll need four 18×12-inch pieces of heavy duty aluminum foil. Spoon the mixture onto each rectangle and seal the packets up by double-folding the top and ends. Be sure to leave space for steam to collect (this is what will help the veggies get super-tender).

These will cook on the grill or in the oven at 400 degrees for about twenty minutes until all the components are fully cooked through. The only thing that will make this meal better is if you follow it up with banana boat s’mores, which also happen to be conveniently assembled in little foil packs.
