The inspiration for these easy keto seafood foil packs came to me after visiting one of my favorite restaurants in Kentucky, the Seafood Lady. However, I realized I had just ate way too many carbs as that version included corn on the cob and potatoes.
I wanted to make a low carb version and started brainstorming. By adding more kielbasa and zucchini, the low-carb version tasted great.

How do I prepare shrimp and crab before cooking?
The day before I make my foil packs, I take my shrimp and crab out of the freezer (if frozen). It should just take a day to thaw out completely and you won't have to worry about quick thawing later.
If you are in a pinch and have frozen crab and shrimp, allow them to sit in cold water for about an hour or two to thaw out.
