  • Prep Time 45 min
  • Total Time 45 min
  • Servings 6

Ingredients

1 1/2
cups uncooked regular long-grain white rice
3
cups water
1
lb uncooked deveined peeled large shrimp, thawed if frozen, tail shells removed
1
lb sea scallops, thawed if frozen
1
can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes with garlic and onions, undrained
1
medium bell pepper (any color), chopped (1 cup)
1
medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
3
to 4 teaspoons Cajun seasoning

Directions

  • 1 Heat gas or charcoal grill. Cook rice in water as directed on package. Meanwhile, cut 6 (18x12-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil; spray with cooking spray.
  • 2 In large bowl, mix cooked rice and remaining ingredients. Place 1/6 of mixture (dividing shrimp and scallops evenly) on center of each sheet.
  • 3 Bring up 2 sides of foil over shrimp mixture so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again, allowing space for heat circulation and expansion. Fold other sides to seal.
  • 4 Place packets on grill over low heat. Cover grill; cook 12 to 15 minutes, rotating packets 1/2 turn after 6 minutes, or until shrimp are pink.
  • 5 To serve, cut large X across top of each packet; carefully fold back foil to allow steam to escape.
