Or how to eat Lemon Garlic Herb Shrimp all day, every day.

HAllo, friends! Hope you are having a lovely day. If not, maybe some food will make it better? It works for me! 

It’s been a hot minute since I last cared about shrimp (12 days ago … but it was Coconut Lime Shrimp! Holla!) because I go through these phases of cravings. Currently, it’s seafood with a nice amount of citrus. I think it’s my body’s way of recognizing that warmer, summery weather is on the horizon.

And while on the subject of summery shrimp, I would like to also present to you this new, crazylicious shrimp recipe with all your preferred things in it.

This is my favorite way to eat shrimp and I don’t think it’s ever going to change. Combined lemon + garlic + parsley + basil, all together, they lend an amazing flavor to seafood.

Sidenote: Breaking news! This is one of the only very few times I would dare suggest cilantro in place of parsley. I mucho dislike cilantro. DON’T hate me, please!! But it tastes soapy and it just overpowers everything – I can’t taste anything else but the cilantro. However! If you would rather use that in place of parsley, go right ahead. I’m sure you’ll love it.

Assuming that you didn’t exit out after my cilantro-dislike revelation, let me just go ahead and assure you that it would probably be the best-est-est idea to make some Lemon Garlic Herb Shrimp for dinner tonight, and let those herbs be chosen by your taste buds. Parsley and basil for me, cilantro and dill for you?? Why not!? 

Also? I’m arguing over leaves… LOL! 

Anywaaaayz…

LEMON GARLIC HERB SHRIMP PACKETS

A bit buttery, citrusy, and garlicky, this baked shrimp recipe is the BEST I have ever had.

I combined all the flavors together in a ziploc bag, stuck the shrimp in there, and gave them like, 10-ish minutes to marinade. Which, BY THE WAY, the citrus will almost cook the raw shrimp, but for the sake of awesome flavor, we can look the other way, mmm’kay?

LEMON GARLIC HERB SHRIMP PACKETS ON THE GRILL

  • Preheat an outdoor grill to medium-high heat.
  • Fold the sides of the foil over the shrimp, covering completely; seal the packets closed.
  • Transfer the foil packets to the grill, cover grill and cook for 10-12 minutes, or until shrimp are opaque.

    Seriously this was AMAZING!! Not to mention how quick and easy it was to whip up! Served it on top of Jasmine rice and a side of broccoli!
    Thank you for the recipe! It will be a staple in my household now!

    I love shrimp and am always looking for new ideas. The first time I try a new recipe I always do it exactly like it is published, then I can tweak it from there next time. I was apprehensive about the time and temperature you listed but against my better judgement did it any way. The shrimp were way overcooked, like chewing on erasers. I though the taste was good but ruined two pounds of shrimp. I will adjust to what my gut feeling says if I ever try this again.

  3. Wow, this recipe looks fantastical and just reading it made me hungry as a bear. Only thing I would do differently
    to save time, since I am a Foodie, I will make this wonderful recipe and put it all in one Super Packet and when it’s
    done, serve it over my favorite linguine. Hope there is enough liquid to soak up Crusty Italian Bread.
    Katerina, your going to make me fat……LOL Ciao!!!!!

    I am so excited to try this! And I will use the cilantro too, I know so many people taste it as soapy, but me… I can even eat it plain! Yum! Thank you for the recipe!

  5. This looks so fantastic – just bursting with fresh, light, summery flavors! And packet cooking is such fun! Plus, I really appreciate the advice about cilantro vs. parsley. Most of my family (definitely including me!) adores cilantro, but my daughter is another one of those people who experiences that soapy, unpleasant taste – so it’s great to know I’ve got options here! Lovely recipe!

    These packets look so flavorful and delicious! I would love to eat these out on the deck with some white wine. Such a perfect summer dinner!
