These garlic shrimp packets is the easiest way to cook a big batch of great shrimp quick. Perfectly garlicky, with a little red pepper kick. I made extra shrimp and had them the next day as shrimp cocktail. Fantastic! I could’ve eaten them all day long.
And if you’re looking for a kicked-up cocktail sauce, we recommend the Bayou Cocktail Cajun Sauce from Frog Bone. It’s crazy good and spicy.
The perfect bread for sopping up the delicious yum-yum juice that pools at the bottom of the garlic shrimp packets is our favorite gotta-have-it garlic bread.
Also try my grilled hobo packets. They’re full all sorts of yummy things.
