Lemon Garlic Herb Shrimp in Packets – This is the BEST, most delicious baked shrimp recipe made with an amazing lemon garlic herb sauce and cooked inside parchment packets!

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.

    I made this tonight and cut everything in half for just the 2 of us.
    Placed a large handful of spinach down first and poured the mixture over the top in the packet. I used 16-20 size shrimp and baked it for 20 minutes. Perfect. It did need salt, but that was an easy fix. I am eating low carb, so I drained off the sauce and simmered it with a package of shirataki noodles. Loved it! I might add them to the packet next time. I also used foil instead of parchment. It works either way.
    I think the addition of sliced mushrooms and /or zucchini would also be great.
    I will make this again and again. Thanks!!!
    By the way, I am a chef instructor and really appreciate when a recipe works like this one did. Bravo!

  2. Can you make these packets ahead of time? Will the citrus marinade cook them to much if made ahead of time?

  3. This is like my 5th time making these. They are FABULOUS!!! I love it with the cilantro. And even a few extra tomatoes- they are SO delicious with this marinade! The only thing I’ve changed is my shrimp is always way too rubbery after cooking for 20 minutes. So now I’m trying 16 minutes, plus the sitting. My guess is that’ll be even better.
    Thank you for this recipe!!!!!!

  4. This was SOOOOOOO good! I used Cilantro and it was amazing. I made it in the oven and it was perfect! If I were to do it on the grill, would I use tin foil? And no cookie sheet? You mentioned foil on the grill, but I couldn’t see that part for sure.
    Anyway, this was amazing. Thank you!

  5. 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!

  6. Thank you vary much for this recipe, best one I’ve seen for shrimp in a while and it tastes AMAZING!
