Recipe variations and substitutions

  • For the spices you can substitute whatever you like best! Sometimes I will add a sprinkle of chicken bouillon seasoning to it — and just about anything else!
  • Instead of snap peas substitute edamame, Brussels sprouts, or some simple broccoli.
  • You can leave out the oil if you prefer, maybe just spray the foil with cooking spray.

What is a foil pack?

A foil pack is a cooking method where assorted ingredients like meat and vegetables are rolled in aluminum foil like a packet. This seals in steam and moisture, resulting in tender and flavorful meals! Plus they’re almost impossible to mess up and are great for camping or just an easy weeknight meal.

What is the best foil to use for shrimp packets?

You definitely want a sturdy sheet of foil that is big! Look for brands that say things like “maximum strength,” “heavy duty,” and “Large.” Another tip for picking out the best foil is to look for a non-stick brand. This will help ensure your food never sticks to the sheet itself.

Tips and tricks

  • To ensure your cabbage, sprouts, and green onion do not over cook, add them into the foil pack for the last 10 minutes! 
  • Set the foil pack on a sheet pan in the center of the oven rack to ensure it cooks evenly.
  • If you really love lemon, leave the whole thing in the foil pack while it cooks.
