  • aluminum foil


For the Herb Butter Blend:

  • 1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter with Olive Oil and Sea Salt
  • 2 heaping tablespoons fresh parsley finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 lemon zest only

For the Foil Packets:

  • 18 to 20 large shrimp peeled and deveined, with the tails on (raw, uncooked)
  • 1/2 lb. baby medley potatoes cut into small pieces
  • 3 ears corn cut crosswise into 4 pieces each
  • 1 medium zucchini cut into pieces
  • assortment red and yellow cherry tomatoes
  • kosher salt
  • ground black pepper
  • 1 lemon sliced into thin wedges


For the Herb Butter Blend:

  • Using a medium mixing bowl, mix together all the ingredients until combined. Transfer herb butter spread to plastic wrap. Form and shape into a log, cover with the plastic wrap and twist the sides to close. Refrigerate for at least 1 to 2 hours, or overnight. 

For the Foil Packets:

  • Preheat your gas or charcoal grill over high heat. Prep 6 sheets of foil about 15 inches long. Place everything in the center of your foil sheet. Start with a few pieces of shrimp, add some potatoes, 2 pieces of corn, some zucchini and some cherry tomatoes. Top with a heaping tablespoon of the herb butter blend, season with salt and pepper and place a lemon wedge inside.
  • To fold the foil packets: lift up the bottom end of the foil and cover shrimp and potato mixture and fold over the top part of the foil to close. Fold over the top one more time and then, fold over the sides to close and secure. If you have room, fold the sides over one more time as well. Repeat until all the foil packets are made.
  • Place foil packets on to the grill and lower the lid to close the grill. Cook until just cooked through, for about 12 to 15 minutes. Depending on your grill, you may need to cook the packets for longer. To check, open the grill, and using tongs, carefully open a packet to check. When finished, use tongs to carefully remove all of the packets off the grill and onto plates. Open carefully and enjoy! Serve with more herb butter blend if desired.


If you don't have a grill, you can also place these foil packets into your oven. Cook at 425 for about 15 minutes. Enjoy!
