Shrimp and Corn Packets

(3 Votes)
25 Min

The gifts of Mother Nature are endless! You'll love this easy-to-throw-together flavor-packed recipe for fresh, sweet corn and plump shrimp that steam to perfection in the oven or on the grill in disposable foil packets. Just unwrap and serve!

What You'll Need

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 ears sweet corn, husked and halved
  • 2 large bell peppers (1 red, 1 green), cut into long strips
  • 4 scallions (green onions), sliced
  • 1 pound peeled and deveined shrimp

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine olive oil, garlic, and salt; mix well. Add corn, peppers, scallions, and shrimp; toss until evenly coated.
  3. Divide mixture evenly in center of four 14" x 18" pieces of foil. Wrap foil securely, leaving room for steam to circulate; seal edges tightly.
  4. Place packets on a large baking sheet and bake 15 minutes, or place on a preheated grill and cook 10 minutes. Open packets carefully, as steam may be released.


It is best to eat corn the day it is purchased. However, it can be stored in the refrigerator for a few days until ready to use.

This was so easy and delicious! My Hubbie loved it. Will make it again.

I made this recipe with some new potatoes and it was delishes. Full meal in a foil wrap. Quick and Easy.

The corn that Mr. Food pulled out of the oven looked really good. Could he make a show with that recipe or send it to my email
