I love the idea of grilled cilantro garlic shrimp, but on most days it can be a little tricky. This recipe is no mess: no skewers, all in a convenient foil pack cooked on the grill in like 5 minutes!

I love the idea of grilled cilantro garlic shrimp, but on most days it can be a little tricky. This recipe is no mess: no skewers, all in a convenient foil pack cooked on the grill in like 5 minutes. This dish is perfect in summer. Grab a cold one or a glass of white wine and savor these garlicky, flavorful shrimp!

Directions

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl, minus the shrimp. Stir well to combine, taste for salt. Add in the shrimp and marinate in refrigerator for 45 minutes, no more than 1 hour.
  2. Preheat grill to medium heat for 10 to 15 minutes, about 325ºF. I have a charcoal grill. Remove shrimp from refrigerator 20 minutes before cooking.
  3. Divide the shrimp, including the marinade into two foil packets, seal shut. Cook on grill with lid closed for 5 to 7 minutes, checking after 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from grill and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
  5. Serve with sliced baguette for soaking up broth or warm tortillas and salsa.

Chef Notes


For the shrimp you can leave the shells on if you prefer.
