Our kitchen is coming together – finally! – but we are still counter-less, sink-less, and appliance-less, so super simple no-fuss meals are my bread and butter right now. And if it requires hardly and prep and minimal cleanup I am on that meal like white on rice. Enter cold cut sandwiches, one pan dishes, and grilled foil pack meals.

This recipe meets all my requirements for a quick and simple dinner. Foil pack meals are a must in my house, especially in the summertime! This zesty lemon shrimp and broccoli version is one of my favorites yet. No surprise there, when it involves shrimp I just can’t resist.

When I’m cooking I often find that simple ingredients, together, create the best dishes. All you need for this tasty dinner is shrimp, broccoli, lemons, butter, and a few seasonings. Whisk together some melted butter, minced garlic, and dried herbs and toss it with your broccoli and shrimp before dividing it between the foil packs.

There are two options for the broccoli depending on your personal preference. If you like your broccoli more firm, then go right ahead and skip the boiling part. If you like your broccoli really tender, just boil it for 2-3 minutes before adding them to your foil packs.

This meal will blow you away with how easy and delicious it is! Your family will love the flavors, and you will love the quick prep and no-mess cleanup!

  2. In a small bowl whisk together melted butter, honey, garlic, basil, oregano, thyme, and red pepper flakes. Pour mixture over shrimp and broccoli, then toss to combine.
  3. Divide shrimp and broccoli between four 12x12 inch pieces of foil. Add 2-3 lemon slices to each, then wrap tightly to close each foil pack.
  4. Grill over medium-high heat for 10-12 minutes OR bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

Notes
*For the broccoli, if you prefer a little more firm then simply add broccoli straight to the bowl along with the shrimp in step one. If you prefer softer broccoli, boil for 2-3 minutes before adding to the bowl.

please have video for 30 minute meals in foil packs THANKS LEMON HERB SHRIMP

I dont eat shrimp how would chicken work

I’m a widower. Can these be put together in the foil packs and frozen before cooking?

    Yes Larry,it can I’m also a widow an Have made several and put in freezer, to take out at another time.

    I would think so. You would probably want to make sure you blanch the broccoli (essentially you’d be doing the side note, with an ice bath to stop them cooking, then dry it really well before you mix everything together).

    Same question I have!

These are so simple and beautiful! Everyday dinner and parties alike. We leave near the beach…what a great way to take a healthy meal with no fuss.-Laurel

hey girl- this looks so good! yummy for my tummy!

Wow! This looks absolutely incredible Tiffany. I’ve been having major shrimp cravings lately. . .so I definitely think I’m going to need to add this to my menu . .. and STAT. As for a disassembled kitchen. . .I sort of know that feeling. We just moved into a new house and I’m lucky if I can find anything…including my sanity. 😉

This looks real good.

Tried this recipe and it will absolutely delicious. Made a side of fettuccine noodle and was so so pleased. Thank you so much!!!☺️

We made this and took it on our boat. Cooked on grill, all the neighboring boaters came over to see what we were cooking? It smelled delicious! We absolutely loved this meal. Trying it in the oven now! Thank you for sharing!

I loved the recipe, it’s a bit different. I really want to make it look delicious

These turned out so well! I left the packs in the OveN for 20 minutes and it was fully cooked through. I loved the flavor combinations and found the broccoli to have the right level of softness (no pre-steaming required). Thanks for the recipe!
