Cooking Know-How

As with most shellfish, fresh shrimp should be cooked briefly to avoid a tough rubbery texture. When grilling peeled and deveined shrimp, cook just until they turn pink and begin to curl - only a few minutes.

Use Your Oven

Heat oven to 350°F. Assemble and fill foil packet as directed. Bake 15 min. Remove from oven; let stand 5 min. Meanwhile, cook shrimp on hot grill pan on medium-high heat 3 min. on each side or until shrimp turn pink. Serve as directed.


Prepare as directed, except make 4 individual foil packets, filling each packet with 1/4 of the each ingredient. This way each family member can customize his/her own packet by adding or omitting ingredients as desired.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quite good. Quite good. However, that foil pouch didn't work at all, or at least not for us. It leaked and nothing we did to tighted the corners or other folds made any different. So we placed that whole pouch in a separate, larger piece of aluminum foil and wrapped that securely and that worked. Cooking the rice and chopped veggies on the grill worked fine then and the shrimp (frozen, thawed, raw ones) came out extremely well. Instead of wood skewers, we used double metal ones. They don't burn. My wife. who worked with me, and I both thought that next time we might include three or four minced garlic cloves in the veggie packet for a little added pizzazz.

I have a weber grill and I wasn't sure if I should grill the rice and shrimp over a direct or indirect fire. I used a direct fire for both. I put the rice in a round cake pan with foil and it only took 10 minutes to cook. I also put the onion in with the rice. It was very tasty. I grilled the shrimp with the peel on for 3 minutes on one side and 2 minutes on the other side. I think it was over cooked. It was chewy to eat. When you say clean the shrimp are you also taking off the peel before cooking? I will use this recipe again but I'll use indirect heat instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First off you said: "I know what you're thinking, Chuck. First off you said: "I know what you're thinking, Chuck. Who has time to get fresh shrimp during the week, right? Well, don't let that stop you from enjoying grilled shrimp. Frozen shrimp work just as well in this recipe. But how you thaw them is really important. So here are two ways I do it. Put your shrimp in the refrigerator to thaw. Or put the sealed package into a bowl of cold water. But remember, change the water every 10 minutes until the shrimp are completely thawed." With a bait net wadeing the flats in FL we can get alive shrimp, also, on rainy days at a bait shake we can buy live Gulf jumbo shrimp for about $.2.50 a doz., plus get them in the store as well. In short, we always have fresh shrimp here. Plus one could use olive oil or veggie oil or vehhie spray to coat them to. Enjoy!.

The night I had planned this meal, the weather didn't cooperate, so I had to make it indoors. I cooked the rice in a pot, boiling the broth and veggies before adding the rice, then I cooked the shrimp under the broiler. The rice was quite good but could use a little umph of seasoning, I think. Hubby added soy sauce to the leftovers when he heated them up. Also, I found the shrimp to be a bit bland and wished I would have added Old Bay to them, but overall this was a good recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely delicious and colorful! Absolutely delicious and colorful! We used an orange pepper instead of a red pepper. I was glad I read someone's comment about not putting the Italian dressing in the rice. We did not and were glad we didn't. I think it would have been too much. Since we are in Florida, we have decided that this will be a great recipe to use if we lose power from a hurricane. My husband said it was a great way to enhance a simple rice dish. Thank you.

For the skewers I actually used a similar recipe from a party I went to. I skewered shrimp with slices of green bell pepper and colbyjack cheese chunks. I wrapped the skewers in strips of bacon and placed on the grill until done. They turned out awesome and went great with the rice!

After reading all the wonderful comments on this dish, I was so excited to make it, but it didn't turn out well at all. The shrimp was really good, but the rice was bland and just not good at all. I used yellow squash instead of zucchini, but the only thing we liked about this recipe was the shrimp.

Due to weather issues (not suitable for grilling!), used the oven to cook this meal --- was easy to prep, added other veggies (ie yellow peppers and carrots - very colorful eye appealing meal), but was a bit bland (perhaps with grilling may have been more flavorful). Easy to reheat leftovers.
