These grilled shrimp scampi foil packets are SO good, you’ll want to serve them with crisp bread to soak up all the delicious garlicky juices! When you want easy grilling, foil packet meals are perfect for weeknight dinners with easy clean-up!

My preferred foil for grilling is Reynolds Wrap Heavy-Duty Aluminum Foil which is a heavier gauge foil than standard Reynolds Wrap, which is perfect since you don’t have to worry about breaking or tearing, even with heavier foods and it protects food over direct heat.

How To Make Foil Packets

  • Tear off a 16” sheet of foil.
  • Center the food on the foil sheet.
  • Bring up the long sides of the foil, so the ends meet over the food.
  • Double fold the ends, leaving room for heat to circulate inside.
  • Double fold the two short ends to seal the packet.
  • Grill covered directly on the flame according to directions.
  • To bake in the oven, preheat oven to 425F and cook 10 to 12 minutes.
