Cajun Shrimp Foil Packs
Do you ever come home from a busy day at work and just want to enjoy something both easy and bursting with flavor? Well in my world there’s no reason you should have to sacrifice either for the other! Just throw in whatever veggies you have lying around the fridge, some butter, and lots of Cajun spice and you’re ready to go!
I’m back with another grilling recipe because summer is quickly running away from me and I want to advantage of it for as long as I can. This recipe for Cajun shrimp and veggies in foil packets is so easy and it really can be ready in 20 minutes from start to finish. And the best part? No dishes!
Why Foil Packs?
You’ll be hard pressed to find a cooking method that’s as mess free, fast, satisfying, or sure to deliver a good punch of flavor like cooking with foil packs! The enclosed aluminum guarantees we get lots of heat, thanks to the steam that is released and then trapped in our little packs, so if you’ve never cooked this way before get ready to be converted!
How To Make Cajun Shrimp Foil Packs
Detailed measurements and instructions can be found on the printable recipe card at the bottom of the page.
- Prepare the foil: You’ll need 4 big sheets of foil, about 1 1/2 feet long. I like to double the foil to avoid any juices from seeping out while grilling.
- Assemble the packs: Divide the ingredients equally among 4 packets, a tbsp of butter and a tsp of cajun spice in each. Place all the ingredients into the center of the foil, in the order that the ingredients are listed.
- Cook the Cajun Shrimp Foil Packs: Wrap the foil tightly around the shrimp and veggies. Grill over medium high heat for 10 to 15 minutes or bake at 425 F degrees for about 15 to 20 minutes. Squeeze some more lemon over the shrimp if preferred, then serve while warm.
