I’m kind of sad that grilling season is almost over with, but at the same time, I am looking forward to Fall and pumpkin season! Next month will be full of pumpkin and apple recipes, I promise, but I got one last grilling recipe for you all and it is so delicious! Shrimp and salmon are my 2 favorites and protein/seafood of choice. Love these two combos together.
Make your own Seasoning Salt
When you have a bunch of spices in your cabinet that you need to get rid of or you just feel like being creative, throw them all together in a jar and you will have a brand new seasoning blend that you can call your own. That is exactly what I did with this seasoning salt recipe and it was so good. I combined lemon pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and a little cayenne pepper to give this a nice little kick. I’ve tested this seasoning on shrimp, salmon, and chicken so far and it is really tasty. I mixed it together with my garlic butter recipe and it is now my go-to seasoning recipe that you might start seeing a lot on this site.
Grill or Bake
You can grill or bake these foil packets, the choice is up to you. I grilled mine on high heat for 5 to 7 minutes and the salmon and shrimp were cooked perfectly. If you bake them I’d do it at a high heat like at 400 degrees for 12 minutes.
What to serve with foil packets?
You can add some extra veggies to the packets like asparagus or broccoli but I cooked up some potatoes in my Instant Pot for 10 minutes in my pressure cooker.
Garlic Butter Shrimp and Salmon Foil Packets
1 6oz salmon fillet
5 shrimp, peeled and deviened
2 tablespoons of softened butter
2 tsp of garlic
2 tsp of seasoning salt (see recipe below)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Fresh Parsley for garnish (optional)
Season salmon with salt and salt and pepper.
Transfer salmon to piece of tinfoil large enough to hold the salmon and shrimp.
Season shrimp with salt and pepper
Transfer to tinfoil and place on top of salmon
In a small bowl, mix together softened butter, seasoning salt, and garlic. Add a tablespoon on top of the shrimp and salmon.
Close up the sides of the tinfoil so that the salmon and shrimp are completely covered by it.
Grill or Bake the salmon and shrimp foil packets. Grill on high for 5 to 7 minutes or bake at 400 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes. Squeeze some lemon juice over top and enjoy!
