Shrimp Scampi Foil Packets - Everyone's favorite shrimp scampi without any of the fuss in these easy-to-assemble foil pouches! Prep ahead of time too!!!

I love a good shrimp scampi.

I love it on its own.

Over a bed of pasta…some polenta…you name it.

Any variation. I’m there.

BUT.

This is kind of the best right here.

In the middle of the woods.

With unwashed hair and the same clothes you’ve been wearing 3 days straight.

So when you open your foil packet of shrimp scampi, it’s pretty much everything.

With a side of crusty bread to soak up all that buttery goodness.

I mean.

Let’s call a spade a spade.

This just tastes better outdoors.
