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!
