Shrimp and Asparagus Foil Packs with Garlic Lemon Butter Sauce


Shrimp and Asparagus Foil Packs with Garlic Lemon Butter Sauce

Shrimp Foil Packs are quick to make yet the are brimming with bright fresh flavor. And to think I was once a shrimp hater.

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 lbs large (21/25) shrimp peeled and deveined*
  • 2 Tbsp dry white wine or chicken broth
  • 4 tsp minced garlic (4 cloves)
  • 2 tsp lemon zest
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 Tbsp butter diced into small cubes
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 lb medium thickness asparagus woody ends trimmed
Instructions
  • Preheat a grill to medium-high heat (about 400 - 425 degrees). 
  • Cut 4 sheets of 14 by 12-inch heavy duty aluminum foil then lay each piece separately on countertop.
  • Divide shrimp among packs near center then place asparagus to one side of the shrimp (going the long direction of the foil).
  • Pour 1/2 Tbsp white wine over each. Sprinkle over garlic (1 tsp per packet) and lemon zest then season with salt and pepper. 
  • Divide butter pieces evenly among packets layering them over the shrimp and asparagus.
  • Wrap packets in and crimp edges together then wrap ends up (don't wrap too tight - keep a little extra space inside for heat to circulate). 
  • Grill, sealed side upward, until shrimp has cooked through, about 9 - 10 minutes. 
  • Carefully unwrap then drizzle with lemon juice (or just serve with lemon wedges for spritzing) and sprinkle with parsley.
