Shrimp and Asparagus are cooked together in individual foil packs in a rich buttery sauce. The bright lemon pairs perfectly here and the garlic adds so much flavor. Cook them on the grill or in the oven.


  • Servings: 4
  • Prep: 12minutes
  • Cook: 10minutes
  • Ready in: 22


  • 1 1/2 lbs large (21/25) shrimp , peeled and deveined
  • 2 Tbsp dry white wine or chicken broth
  • 4 tsp minced garlic (4 cloves)
  • 2 tsp lemon zest
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 Tbsp butter , diced into small cubes
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 lb medium thickness asparagus , woody ends trimmed


  • Preheat a grill to medium-high heat (about 400 – 425 degrees F).
  • Cut 4 sheets of 14 by 12-inch heavy duty aluminum foil then lay each piece separately on countertop.
  • Divide shrimp among packs near center then place asparagus to one side of the shrimp (going the long direction of the foil).
  • Pour 1/2 Tbsp white wine over each. Sprinkle over garlic (1 tsp per packet) and lemon zest then season with salt and pepper.
  • Divide butter pieces evenly among packets layering them over the shrimp and asparagus.
  • Wrap packets in and crimp edges together then wrap ends up (don’t wrap too tight – keep a little extra space inside for heat to circulate).
  • Grill, sealed side upward, until shrimp has cooked through, about 9 – 10 minutes.
  • Carefully unwrap then drizzle with lemon juice (or just serve with lemon wedges for spritzing) and sprinkle with parsley.


  • For baking in the oven: preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Cook 13 to 15 minutes.
  • A good side dish for these is couscous, orzo, or rice since you’ll have that delicious sauce with a little extra to go around.
