Grilled Shrimp Foil Pouch Recipe
Hi, my name is Lindsay Wilkes from The Cottage Mama and I’m so happy to be here sharing a delicious summer recipe with you. Usually, you can find me over on my blog sewing and crafting the majority of the time, but occasionally I like to change it up and share some of my favorite recipes here and there!
One of the best parts of summer to me is definitely grilling. Now I’m not the grill master around my house (my hubby helps out in that department), but I absolutely adore the smell of food cooking out on the grill and like to eat it even more. If you like shrimp, you are going to absolutely love this recipe! It’s so super-simple and there is no worrying about your shrimp falling through your grill because the whole dish is cooked inside a foil pouch. SO easy!

How to Make Grilled Shrimp in a Foil Pouch
How to Wrap Tin Foil Dinners
- Use heavy-duty aluminum tin foil or double up with regular strength.
- Roll up the center of the foil pouch and then roll up both sides until you have a nice and secure foil pouch.
- Then repeat the above steps for the other half of the shrimp. You will have two pouches if you are using 1 pound of shrimp.
- Make sure the edges are crimped tightly to avoid any oil or butter from leaking.

Can you Make Foil Pouch Dinners Ahead of Time?
That’s the beauty of tin foil pouch dinners, especially if you’re prepping for a camping trip. You can prep all the meals ahead of time with whatever ingredients you’re using. Always store dinners in the fridge or a cooler if you’re camping. Here are 30 tin foil dinner ideas.
- 1 pound shrimp, (with shells, but deveined and cleaned)
- 1/2 stick butter, softened
- 1/4 cup fresh chives, chopped
- 3 cloves fresh garlic, chopped or a heaping teaspoon of chopped garlic in a jar
- 1 lemon
- 1 loaf crusty french bread, for dipping
- Make the herb butter. Combine the softened butter, garlic and chives. Then add the zest of half of the lemon. Stir to combine.
- Cut two large pieces of foil and lay one on top of each other. We don’t want any of the delicious butter sauce to run out so it’s a good idea to use two sheets just in case one rips. Grab your shrimp. Each foil pouch will contain 1/2 pound shrimp. Arrange half your raw shrimp in the middle of two pieces of foil.
- Take half of the butter mixture and place it on top of the shrimp.
- Roll up the center of the foil pouch and then roll up both sides until you have a nice and secure foil pouch. Then repeat the above steps for the other half of the shrimp. You will have two pouches if you are using 1 pound of shrimp.
- Place the shrimp on a grill heated on high and cook for approximately 8 minutes. You do not want to over cook your shrimp, so be careful. If you don’t have a grill or are trying this recipe during colder weather months, you could certainly give it a try in the oven.
- Serve with an extra sprinkling of chives, fresh lemon slices and crusty french bread.
Heavy-duty foil does a better job with tin foil pouch meals. You can double up regular aluminum foil if needed.
