I did cut the recipe in half for just the 2 of us & served it with some grilled potatoes ~ Definitely a winner of a recipe & for shrimp lovers, well worth making again! Very flavorful! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

Very nice and flavorful shrimp.. I did though use 1 packet instead of the 6.. Had some of the extra shrimp with some brown rice too, and served with some garlic bread. The butter sauce< MMMmmm. Great stuff, also used a tad of this on the garlic bread too. Made for PRMR tag..

This is awesome! I used medium size, tail on shrimp. The shrimp were placed in one packet reserving some of the butter. The additional butter mixture was placed on top of fresh asparagus which was also put into a foil packet and cooked on the grill as well. I have an abundance of Thai basil and used that in place of the parsley. The shrimp was served on top of Guam's Red Rice for a quick and delightful meal. Made for ZWT 7.
