Yes, they are delicious; they have luscious, delicious shrimp as well as lemon, garlic, butter, and other ingredients. You’ll be enjoying this all season long! But it’s not too soon (or too late) to prepare those juicy, delicious shrimp over a bonfire, grill, or simply on the stovetop!

campfire foil packet shrimp pasta may be prepared in 30 minutes using nonstick foil, eliminating the need to boil the pasta ahead of time. One of my favorite pasta meals is shrimp scampi. It’s a simple recipe with a delicious lemony garlic butter sauce served with pasta the easy way. The traditional method requires at least two pots and pans: one for boiling the noodles and one for cooking the shrimp and sauce. Not with this recipe

These grilled shrimp foil packets are so wonderful, you’re going to want to share them with crusty bread to mop up all of the juices! Foil packet dinners are ideal for weekday dinners that require minimal cleanup!

My favorite foil for foil packets is Reynolds Wrap Heavy-Duty Aluminum Foil, which is a thicker sheet of foil than ordinary Reynolds Wrap and protects food from high temperatures.

How To Make Foil Packets

  • Tear out a 16-inch piece of tinfoil.
  • Place the meal onto the foil sheet.
  • Fold up both long edges of the foil until the ends touch above the meal.
  • Double fold both ends, allowing heat circulation inside.
  • To close the packet, double fold the two short ends.
