How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 11 ingredients in a large bowl; toss well. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 425°.

Step 3

Fold 4 (16 x 12-inch) sheets of heavy-duty aluminum foil in half crosswise. Open foil. Remove shrimp mixture from bowl; reserve marinade. Place about 2 1/4 cups shrimp mixture on half of each foil sheet. Drizzle remaining marinade evenly over shrimp. Top each serving with 1 teaspoon butter. Fold foil over shrimp; tightly seal edges.

Step 4

Place packets on a baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 20 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes. Place on plates. Unfold packets carefully; peel shrimp, and serve immediately.

I've made this twice now and both times a big hit, though very large shrimp is key. I peel them before putting them in the foil, otherwise it's just way too messy. Served with crusty bread and salad.

Light and easy. Great taste and flavor. Definitely shorten up on the cooking time in the oven. Check after 10 minutes.

I made this recipe on a camping trip. It was easy to make and clean up. Throw in a green salad and some crusty bread and you have a "nice" dinner. As some of the previous reviewers said, the tastes are not overwhelming but this is a good, solid recipe.

An all time fave of my family. I also omit the extra butter in each packet. And don't worry if you don't have time to marinate the shrimp - it's still good without.

So easy and delicious. The shrimp was seasoned perfectly and came out just right. Going into the rotation!

Really good combination of flavors in the recipe. I omitted the additional butter in the packet. Cooking time of 20 min for 25-35 ct shrimp was waaayyy too long. Will try again with 10 min in the oven 10 min rest next time. Just served mine plain with some bread to soak up the sauce, but will try it over rice next time.

I love this easy to make recipe. I used half the lemon, twice the tobasco sauce, and peeled shrimp. I found the flavor to be really good. My husband loved it as well.

Awesome recipe. I doubled the marinade and served the packets over rice. It was an awesome meal. Wish I had bought a loaf of bread to dunk in the sauce. Great dinner!
