Ingredients

For these tasty foil packet meals, you need the following ingredients:

  • 1 ¼ pounds medium shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1 red bell pepper seeded and thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove peeled and crushed
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime zest
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 avocado peeled, pitted, and thinly sliced
  • 1 lime quartered
red bell pepper, avocado, limes, and cilantro

How To Make Grilled Lime Shrimp Packets

Start by prepping the fruits and veggies. Once you have the limes zested and the bell peppers sliced, it’s time to get things marinating.

In a large bowl, add the shrimp, bell pepper, garlic, oil, lime juice, lime zest, salt, and black pepper. Toss to coat. Cover the bowl and let the shrimp marinate in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.

Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Cut four (12″ × 18″) rectangles out of heavy-duty foil. Divide the shrimp mixture (with juices) evenly among foil rectangles. Fold foil over shrimp to seal each packet.

If you don’t live near a coast and don’t have access to fresh shrimp, you can purchase frozen shrimp and thaw them in cold water. There are usually directions on the packet of shrimp on how to safely thaw it.
