Shrimp is another grilled favorite, but sometimes can get annoying with the risk of falling into your fire or having to skewer them. Try out these two shrimp foil packets you and your family will love!

A few tips ahead of time: you can have your shrimp marinating in the sauces for a few hours in a plastic baggie. Prep the whole meal in the morning (in the foil packet) so when dinner time comes, you just have to set the foil packets in the hot coals.
