Need more seafood in your life? Try this simple cajun shrimp foil packet meal. This recipe is an easy clean up with all the flavor! Fresh caught shrimp and summer vegetables are always win at our house!
We caught these shrimp in Whitter, Alaska and omg they were good! I’ll be honest I did not love twisting off their heads but I do love knowing where my protein comes from. There is nothing like fresh shrimp coming right from the Prince William Sound.
Shrimp and veggies wrapped in foil doesn’t get much easier and there’s no mess! This recipe is fool proof, even if you have zero grilling skills.
Foil packet meals are a great option for camping trips too! This shrimp recipe provides a well-balanced meal in only 15-20 minutes without a mess. It’s easy to make over a campfire or during a busy weeknight where the last thing you want to do is a load of dishes.
Pro Tip: Freeze all of the shrimp tails and peelings vs. putting them in the trash to prevent any stinky smells.
