What a great surprise! We followed the recipe pretty faithfully; other reviewers called for more corn and beans, so we just used less shrimp to change the proportions. Loved it. Forgot to add any cheese, and we still loved it. The only hassle was cleaning the shrimp, but it was worth it in the end.

Super quick and easy! I will definitely make this again. I used 1 lb of large shrimp and it was plenty. I also wrapped in foil but baked on 400 instead (no grill) for 15-20 mins. Agree with other review-more corn and black beans and have cheese as a garnish. I also added salsa as a topping. Will try adding a can of diced tomatoes next time too.

Quick and easy are what I look for and this is it. Even my teenager said "It's a keeper" when the meal was over. Next time I may add a splash of lime to pull in the Southwest flavor just a bit more.

Simple, basic recipe. Not a wow-er, but good for a weeknight. 15 min was too long, shrimp was a little tough & cheese formed a black crust on the foil. I don't know that it even needed the cheese, but if I make again I might try instead Monterrey Jack & add it just after the packet is opened. I also didn't use canned corn with peppers, but rather thawed some frozen corn b/c it retains its crispy sweetness lacking in canned. I also added more corn and beans than the recipe called for.

AWESOME!!! I love this recipe!!! It's simple, it's excellent, and it's great on tortillas. What more could you want? I don't serve it on rice...seems like a waste for all of the great Caribbean flavor you get, so I make the packet and then serve it in a tortilla, or just serve the contents of the packet if it's just my husband and I. Perfect after a long day on the boat and I'm too tired to make dinner. Definitely try this one!

Very good, solid, easy recipe. The only changes I would make for next time are: more corn, and more black beans. The cheese doesn't seem to add anything, so I might leave that off, or just add it on the end when served.

This is a simple, tasty recipe that I will definitely make again. Next time I will make a bit less than 4 cups of rice. I made this in a grill pan on the stovetop and it turned out great--next time I will cook it for a few minutes less than 15 minutes. I also added a bit more cajun seasoning than called for, plus a couple dashes of ground red pepper.

LOVED this one - quick and easy and fantastic!

Like many other people, I didn't use a grill. I wrapped the shrimp, beans, corn, and cheese in foil and baked at 450 for about 20 minutes. It is super easy and clean up was a breeze. We had it with glazed-pineapple on the grill pan. Would make again because of the ease!

Didn't have creole seasoning - but made my own. I would make multiple packets next time so everyone could create their own flavors and veggies. I used pre-cooked, tail off shrimp. Cooked for 10 min and it created a sauce - i expected it to "char" a little but the foil packet created steam and moisture.
