what to serve with these shrimp foil packets

Make theses Garlic Butter Shrimp Foil Packets for the whole family to enjoy and serve it over noodles, zoodles, rice, or quinoa. My kids love noodles but I usually have mine with quinoa. These are also perfect if you like to do some meal prepping for the week. Shrimps and Salmon are pretty much the only protein I don’t mind reheating. What about you?

can I use other sauces in these shrimp foil packets?

It’s so easy to cook with shrimps because it works so well with so many sauces and its the easiest to cook. And it’s especially good for these shrimp foul packets, as they are super versatile. When preparing shrimps for cooking you have so many options to go with. Simple butter and garlic, harissa paste, red pepper paste, all sorts of salsa, pesto, Aioli, oregano, fajitas marinademiso, and the list go on.

how to peel and devein shrimp

Using pre-shelled and deveined shrimp is the easiest route to go down, but if you want to go super fresh or you can only find shelled shrimp you can use them.

Pull the legs off first and then break open the shell on the underside of the shrimp and peel it off. Pinch the tail where it meets the shell and pull the rest of the meat out. Then, use the point of a sharp knife to pull the dark vein out. Make sure to rinse or wipe the knife off every deveining.

storing leftovers

To Store, place any leftovers in an airtight storage container in the refrigerator, they will last for up to 2 days. To These Shrimp Foil Packets are best enjoyed the day they are made but can be reheated gently in the microwave.

Since shrimp tend to dry out easily when reheated, so it’s best to keep them separate and serve chilled or at room temperature over the veggies or a salad.
