You guys, I truly do adore shrimp foil dinners with an Asian flair. It’s like, how does anyone even eat shrimp that hasn’t been soaked in soy sauce?! And some worcestershire? With a pinch(es) of pepper flakes, and all that jazz? Wrapped up in Reynolds® Aluminum Foil? 

And even more than just that. Rice tucked underneath the shrimp, broccoli right beside it? This is how we DO IT!

I have used Reynolds® Aluminum Foil before many-a-times. It’s the perfect tool for mess-free cooking. And just for total and complete disclosure, I AM a Reynolds Ambassador because I am a SUPER HUGE fan of Reynolds-all-the-things! Parchment Paper, Slow Cooker Liners, Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil… you name it, I have it and love it.

HOW TO MAKE SHRIMP IN FOIL PACKETS

The trick to these shrimp foil packets is quite simple: gather all your ingredients before starting. In fact, that’s what you should always do – all ingredients should be in front of you before turnin’ up the heat!

  • When ready to begin, I’ll have you soak some 5-minute-rice in lukewarm water, and then you’ll arrange the rice (sans water) over each foil packet.

  • Next, you will want to arrange the broccoli alongside the rice, with the shrimp right next to it.
  • We are going to finish this off with a pour of that lovely sauce over everything, and wrap it all up for a quick roast in the oven.

ENJOY!

  1. This looks wonderful! Can I use riced cauliflower instead of rice? I think I can tweak the sauce to bring down the carbs. Thanks!

      No, jasmine won’t work unless you precook it. Instant rice works only because it is fast cooking rice. Any other rice will be crunchy and undercooked.

  3. Where has this been all of my life? There isn’t anything more perfect than shrimp, rice and broccoli except said ingredients in a foil packet!!!

      Hi! In theory, yes, but I’m afraid of all the water they will release into the foil while cooking, and you might end up with one bland dinner. 😀

  5. I am so trying these! I’m all for anything easy right now. And yes, still finishing up my shopping.
