Clean Eating Tuna Pinwheels Recipe

You can eat well after a hurricane with preparation, a dash of creativity and the right available ingredients.

Uncut fruit and vegetables will likely stay “good” during a power shortage, but make sure to find clean water to wash them if you haven’t already. Once cut, use all the produce to avoid spoilage.

Here are a few no-cook dishes and some you can make on a grill.

Shrimp Fajita Pocket

Try this method of grilling to use up any perishables in your freezer. Just make sure they’re still at safe temperatures before cooking.

12 raw shrimp

1/2 red bell pepper, sliced into strips

1/2 yellow onion, sliced into strips

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 tablespoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper

Equipment: Grill, tongs, two 12-inch squares of aluminum foil

1. Preheat the grill on high heat.

2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients. Mix well.

3. On one piece of foil, spread all of the ingredients in a single layer in the center of the foil. Place the other sheet on top. Crimp the sides so it forms a packet.

4. Grill for about 6 minutes. Carefully flip the packet using the tongs.

5. Grill for an additional 6 minutes, or until your shrimp are pink and cooked.

6. Be careful opening the packet.
