Grilled shrimp is the perfect summer dish. Light, flavorful, and so versatile, grilled shrimp is a crowd-pleaser that can work as an appetizer, a side dish, or even as an entree.

And if you haven’t tried making shrimp in foil packets yet, you are missing out! Using a foil packet for shrimp is an effective, simple way to cook your shrimp to perfection, with little to no cleanup required.

You simply put your ingredients inside a packet fashioned from aluminum foil and heat. The foil holds heat inside, keeping your food from drying out while cooking it evenly. When making a grilled shrimp foil packet, you can use your oven, a grill, or even a campfire.

This recipe for grilled shrimp foil packets from Delish is easily cooked on the grill (or in the oven) for just 15-20 minutes. Pink, juicy shrimp is seasoned with olive oil and Old Bay seasoning and then brightened up with fresh parsley and lemon juice. This shrimp foil packet also includes andouille sausage, corn on the cob and red potatoes.

But the best thing about these foil packets is that you can easily modify each one to suit your family’s palette and your dietary needs. So, if you are on a keto diet or you are a pescatarian, you can customize your shrimp foil packet however you like.
