Lemon Garlic Dill Shrimp & Potatoes in Foil Packets. I rarely rough it while camping and these are an easy, delicious meal!


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp fresh dill weed ( or 2 tsp dry)
  • 1 pound uncooked shrimp (31-40 per pound), peeled and deveined – and STILL FROZEN!
  • 1 lb potatoes
  • sea salt & pepper to taste


  1. Combine all of the ingredients together in a large bowl. ( just break the frozen shrimp apart)
  2. Lay out two sheets of tinfoil ( double thickness). Spray with  cooking spray.
  3. Divide the potatoes and shrimp evenly between the two.
  4. Fold the tinfoil, creating a sealed packet.
  5. Cook on the campfire, BBQ or in your oven until the potatoes are tender, around 30 minutes or so. Shake occasionally while cooking to prevent the food from sticking/burning.


The key is to use frozen shrimp so that they take longer to cook alongside the potatoes. If you are camping, cook these the first night!

I am a dill freak, so I double the dill in this!
