Ingredients

  • 2 lbs Raw Jumbo shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 2 Tbsp Butter melted
  • 1 Tbsp Raw Honey
  • 4 Garlic Cloves minced
  • 2 Limes Juice and Zest
  • 2 Zucchini large, diced
  • 1 1/2 Cup Cherry Tomatoes
  • 1 Cup Corn kernels fresh or frozen
  • 1 Tsp Chilli Flakes
  • Sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
  • Lime slices to garnish
  • Small bunch of fresh chopped parsley

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  • In a large bowl add shrimp, butter, honey, garlic, lime juice and zest, chili flakes, and parsley. Stir in tomatoes, zucchini, and corn, then gently toss to coat.
  • Tear off four 16-inch sheets of aluminum foil and place them over a baking sheet, each one in its own corner.
  • Divide the shrimp and veggie mixture and add it to the middle of the foils.
  • Seal the foil packets, and bake for 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let rest for 5 minutes before opening the packets. Carefully open the packets. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Adjust the chili flakes to your level of spiciness. Or omit them altogether, these Shrimp Foil Packets still taste divine!
  • Shrimp will turn from juicy to overdone quickly, so do not overcook shrimp.
  • If you're using frozen shrimp, make sure they are fully thawed and then rinsed well and drained.
  • You can swap to lemon instead of lime, for a twist of citrus flavor!
  • Using pre-shelled and deveined shrimp is great for ease.
  • Use fresh lime juice for the best flavor.
