Shrimp Foil Packs are a Summer Must

Every Summer I make shrimp foil packs of some sort. Two years ago it was Shrimp Boil Foil Packs. Then last year I made Garlic Lemon Butter Shrimp and Asparagus Foil Packs, and Cilantro Lime Shrimp and Cauliflower Rice Foil Packs. Now this year we are here loading all the veggies in with these Shrimp and Veggie Foil Packs!

MY LATEST VIDEOS

Ingredients Needed for these Foil Packs

  • Fresh veggies including zucchini, squash, grape tomatoes, green bell pepper, red onion, fresh corn, garlic and parsley
  • Spices including paprika, celery seed, thyme, cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper
  • Shrimp
  • Olive oil
  • Lemon wedges
  • You’ll also need heavy duty aluminum foil

How to Make Shrimp and Veggie Foil Packs

You’ll start by preheating your grill over medium-high heat (it should come to about 425). Meanwhile cut 8 sheets of foil into pieces measuring 12 by 15-inches.

Then, you’ll cut up the veggies (keep tomatoes whole) and peel the shrimp.

Add the shrimp and veggies to a large mixing bowl, then drizzle with olive oil. Next, sprinkle in garlic and spices (including salt and pepper). Then, toss everything together well.

Divide mixture among double lined foil sheets (lay each sheet per packet in the opposite direction). I like to lay the mixture out in a rectangular shape. Then, wrap packets sealing edges well.

Place on preheated grill. Grill about 12 – 14 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling, until shrimp have cooked through. Open carefully and serve warm, garnished with parsley and lemon wedges for spritzing.

Quality Produce is a Must

Everything I used in these foil packs I bought at Walmart. They have great quality foods and fresh, locally-grown produce that I can count on. I’ve shopped Walmart for a long time because they consistently have deliciously fresh fruit and vegetables that I love to cook with.

Also, I’m always stocking up on lots of fresh fruits and veggies. They’re a go-to snack for me and my kids. I love to make “fruit plates” where I just add a rainbow of colorful fruits on a plate. My kids polish them off in no time!

I love that Walmart sells a variety of locally grown produce, and they re-stock their produce at a least once a day, so I know it’s very fresh. And did you know if you aren’t 100% satisfied with the produce you purchased from Walmart they’ll give you a full refund? Sounds like they’re pretty confident in the produce they’re offering. It really is delicious and it made these Shrimp Packs amazingly tasty and hearty!

  • Willy: Could these be cooked in an Air Fryer? Mine only goes to 400 degrees, so how long? It is only me to cook for. July 16, 2018 at 8:25am Reply

    • Jaclyn: I’ve never used an air fryer but as long as it has a feature similar to an oven then that should be fine. My guess is that it would take a little over 15 minutes at 400 but without testing I can’t say for sure. July 17, 2018 at 10:46am Reply

  • Amanda: Can I prepare these in bulk and freeze them? If so…would you recommend cooking them, cooling, then freezing or freeze uncooked, thaw and bake/grill? Can’t wait to make these! I recently started Isagenix and have been looking for more creative meal options. July 15, 2018 at 7:42pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Unfortunately I don’t recommend freezing these as several of the veggies don’t freeze well. July 15, 2018 at 10:02pm Reply

  • Maffy: I have cooked this recipe a couple of times now. I don’t include yellow squash because it gets to mushy. I use whatever vegetables I have. I agree with others that Old Bay seasoning goes well with this but make sure everyone’s likes that flavor before you add it to the mixture.

  • J.: Could these packets be steamed in the oven? Guestimate on time and temperature? Thanks, looks great! July 2, 2018 at 7:13am Reply

    • Jaclyn: Yes. I’d go with 425 and they’ll probably take about 14 – 16 minutes. July 2, 2018 at 1:05pm Reply

  • Steamed Shrimp: What a delicious way to prepare shrimp. Easy to make and all of the flavors mix together. Goes good with a little Old Bay seasoning. June 30, 2018 at 7:16pm Reply
