Say ‘ELLO to my leedle fwiend (<—said in my best Tony Montana, aka Al Pacino, voice), grilled shrimp IN FOIL!

What’s going awn, friends! Happy Wednesday to you all! We have a GIVEAWAY! WOOOT! And a shrimp-dinner in foil!

By now YOU have figured out that foil-cooking is mah thang. Easy, breezy, beautiful, clever food. I can think of precisely 48 more things you can cook in foil, but today we’ll talk shrimp. On the barbie!

Sidenote: When I was in Australia, I was offered prawns on the barbie … for a few seconds there, I had this DUH-look on my face ’cause I had no clue if we were still speaking English. Thankfully, the host of the party figured out that in ‘Merica, we call ’em shrimp, on the grill.


When you put coconut, garlic and lime on shrimp (which is a very, very smart move), all of the flavors are sucked in by the shrimp and we are all dang happy campers.

Thus, we will first make the coconut lime marinade, which includes exactly that: coconut and lime. Throw it in a ziploc bag together with some shrimp and set aside for about 15 minutes.

In the meantime, get your veggies all chopped up and divide them up between foils.

Top with shrimp and close up the foils. Grill for 10 minutes, or until veggies are tender and shrimp is pink.

Remove from grill and serve! Easy Peasy.

Also, this recipe is PERFECT for camping. Corn, sliced zucchini, bag of shrimp, salt and pepper. BAM! Best camping dinner, yet.

Oh wait. Don’t forget the foils! Grab a few at Costco – I got a box of 500 precut foils from there about 2 years ago and I still have hundreds left. Awesome investment for someone that likes foil-cooked food. I said that already… Anyways.

One more sidenote? I had ten other pretty pictures to show you of this amazingness – good stuff, like pretty plates and step-by-step photos – only for all 90 of them to end up green/red/blue/yellow AND blurry. So blurry, my eyes hurt. Even Photoshop couldn’t help me. It’s all my camera’s fault. It is. The beast has been crying to be replaced for over 6 months, but I’m cheap, so that’s that.

However, I was finally fed up and at that point, I got up, went to my laptop, hopped over to Amazon and blew all my money on a new camera. CAN’T WAIT for the new beauty to arrive!

I personally think this recipe is perfect for snacking, too, to mindlessly pop while you watch RHONY and that other docu show that makes you use your brain.

Also? If you want to pop this in the oven? You are so smart. Go on and do your thing. Just preheat the oven to 400F and cook the shrimp (foiled up!) for about 20 minutes.

    I’m very excited to make this recipe! How many servings does it make? I see it says “serves 1 foil pack” but 1 lb. of shrimp couldn’t possibly be one serving.

  2. Rachelle

    This looks so good and I am going to make it tomorrow. I have unsweetened coconut. Any suggestions on how to add in the sweet flavor? Thanks!

  3. Dawn Davidson

    I’m so looking forward to making this for my husband & myself. Can you tell me what would be the serving size per person?

  4. Nichelle

    I don’t think it is safe to cook in foil. Your marinade looks soooo good can I cook it in the Oven without the foil. I guess we will see. Can you think of anyother way to cook this>

    1. Hi Nichelle!! What you can do is, after marinating for an hour or two, roast the shrimp in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet for about 5 to 8 minutes, or until shrimp turns pink, at 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Be careful because they cook fast. Also, coat the baking sheet with some oil or cooking spray.

    1. Hi Krista! I make the recipes about 3 times before I post about them. During those try outs I take pictures, and if there’s a picture that I like, but wasn’t part of the final recipe-run, I’ll use it. 🙂 With this recipe, I first went to make it with cooked shrimp, and that is why you see that picture. The second time I made it with raw shrimp and that worked out much better on the grill.

    This looks amazing, and I can’t wait to try it! I unfortunately don’t have a grill, but for for how long and at what temperature can I make this in the oven?

    1. Hi Miriam! Yes, you can definitely make them in the oven. Fold the packets as per the instructions, place them on a baking sheet and pop them in a 425F preheated oven for about 12 minutes. Cut a slit in each packet or open up the top of the packet and continue to cook for 2 more minutes. Remove from oven and let stand a couple minutes before serving. If you make them, let me know how it goes. Have a wonderful weekend!!

  6. Haha.. I was confused when someone first said prawns. Whaa? Ahh.. shrimp Gotcha. And woohoo on the new camera purchase!! Can’t wait to see what beautiful pictures you share with it!
