One thing I really love about shrimp is how quickly it can cook, obviously meaning dinner can be ready in no time. Another great thing about shrimp is that it’s a good source of nutrients like selenium, vitamin B12 and phosphorous.
You’ll also be so happy with how easy these shrimp boil foil packets are to throw together, yet they are packed with delicious flavors. This is a dinner win for sure!
