When we think of steaming, we generally think stovetop cooking. And during the heat of summer, that can make this healthy form of cooking seem very unappealing.
The folks at Cooking Light magazine have come up with a simple way to enjoy a delicious steamed dinner without the fuss (or heat) of indoor cooking. For this deliciously spicy shrimp, black bean and corn dish, they use the grill to get the job done. The results are quick and easy, and you don’t need to heat up your kitchen.
The trick is using heavy-duty foil to create a packet in which to cook the food on the grill. By crimping the edges of the packet, the liquid in the food stays inside, turning to steam and cooking the food quickly, while also keeping it moist.
While this recipe calls for doing the entire dish in one large packet, it would be easy enough to create smaller packets and divide the ingredients among them (adjust cooking time if you do). This same technique also works on other seafood (scallops and haddock would be delicious), as well as chicken.
