Variation Ideas

  • Vegetables – I love broccoli in this recipe but you can easily use other types of vegetables. Brussels sprouts, zucchini, carrots and more.
  • Shrimp – We like to use raw shrimp in this recipe, but you can also get frozen shrimp. Make sure to allow the shrimp to thaw before adding it to the foil packs. This helps to keep it from being to watery.
  • Seasoning – Feel free to add in seasoning to this mixture. You can add in cajun seasoning, spice mix, or Italian seasoning onion powder, salt and pepper. I have even added in red pepper flakes for an extra kick in flavor.
  • Change Meat – You can easily use chicken instead of shrimp if you prefer.

Step 4 – Divide Ingredients – Divide shrimp and broccoli between four 12×12 inch pieces of foil. Add 2-3 lemon slices to each, then wrap tightly to close each foil pack.

  • Step 5 – Grill – Grill over medium-high heat for 10-12 minutes OR bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
  • Step 6 – Top with Lemon Juice – Drizzle fresh lemon juice (using the lemon wedges) over the shrimp and broccoli. Then top with fresh parsley if desired. Serve immediately.

Recipe Tips

  • Aluminum Foil – We recommend using heavy duty aluminum foil when making shrimp foil pack dinners. The grill is so hot that you don’t want your foil to burn through or tear.
  • Prepare Shrimp – In this recipe we used raw shrimp but you can also use already cooked shrimp. We like to choose shrimp that has been tailed and deveined.
  • Spray Foil – To prevent the ingredient from sticking to the foil, make sure to spray with cooking spray or olive oil. You can also prepare it with melted butter.
  • Opening Foil Pack – When the ingredients have finished grill, carefully open foil pack. The foil packs release a lot of steam that will be hot as you are opening foil packs.
  • Garlic Lemon Butter Sauce – We love adding this fresh squeeze lemon to the shrimp mixture. It gives it flavor and makes for an easy dinner idea.

How to Bake in the Oven

The great thing about foil packs is you can cook on the grill or in the oven. After preparing the foil packs with the ingredients, fold and place on baking sheet. You can even just place ingredients on a sheet pan.

Bake these packets for 15 minutes to 17 minutes at 425 degrees.  Carefully open the foil packets to make sure they are done and serve.

How to Store Leftovers

Store you leftover in an air tight container in the fridge. This foil packet recipe is best served immediately, but you can reheat in the microwave. Make to sure reheat in a microwave safe dish without the foil.

The leftovers will last about 3 days.
