My Skinny Foil Pack Shrimp Boil Recipe Notes
The original recipe is written to make two servings in foil packet that you place on the grill. You can also place your foil packet on a cookie sheet and bake it in a 425 degree oven for about the same amount of time.
Because I was serving four people I opted to double all the ingredients. I placed everything in a foil pan that I then covered with aluminum foil, set on a baking sheet and baked in the oven until everything was done to my liking, about 30 minutes.
Other changes I made to the recipe include:
- Using granulated roasted garlic instead of fresh
- Using Old Bay Seasoning in place of Cajun Seasoning
- Substituting parsley for cilantro
