Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lbs large (21/25) shrimp peeled and deveined

  • 1 1/2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 lb medium thickness asparagus woody ends trimmed

Instructions

  5. Divide butter pieces evenly among packets layering them over the shrimp and asparagus.
  6. Wrap packets in and crimp edges together then wrap ends up (don't wrap too tight - keep a little extra space inside for heat to circulate).
