Shrimp and Veggie Tin Foil Packets

Inspired by a friend’s suggestion for a camping recipe (Thanks Karie!), I wanted to try to cook an entire entree in tin foil: Shrimp and Veggie Tin Foil Packets. Instead of one big pouch, however, each guest gets their own, so food is proportioned individually, grilled, then unwrapped at their place setting.

Shrimp dinner
Start with raw jumbo shrimp – I like wild, deveined, tail-on from Whole Foods. They come frozen, but are easy to defrost in under 15 mins.

Make an assembly line of tin foil, then lay 5-6 shrimp on each, and season with salt & pepper

Add other spices to your liking: onion salt, garlic powder, dried oregano and basil, whatever you want!

Choose your veggies – here I used peppers, onions, zucchini, squash, asparagus and thinly sliced potatoes

A fresh sprig of rosemary never hurts and looks pretty when its unwrapped

Now you’re ready to wrap up your packets!

Fold tightly so that steam doesn’t escape
Packets are folded and are ready for the grill!

Place on a medium-high grill and cook with lid closed for 12-15 minutes

The final product: a beautifully steamed shrimp and veggie dinner that each guest can unwrap at their seat!

    I absolutely LOVE this Lory! We go “glamping” a couple of times a year and I always make sure we eat like kings on our trips. This is such a great idea that I will absolutely duplicate it. Plus, clean up is a breeze!!

    1. Oh, I’m so glad you can use this Holliday! Glamping sounds like a blast. Please take pictures of your food! Have so much fun! Xoxo
