Cooking time

  • 1-1/2 lbs 1-1/2 large shrimp (21/25), peeled & deveined

  • 1 lb 1 medium thickness asparagus, woody ends trimmed

  • 6 Tbsp 6 Land O Lakes Garlic & Herb Butter Spread

  • salt & pepper to taste

  • 2 Lg 2 lemons, quartered into wedges


  • Cut 4 sheets of 14 by 12-inch heavy-duty aluminum foil. Lay each flat on a solid surface.
  • Divide shrimp and asparagus evenly between foil sheets, grouping them next to each other.
  • Add appx. 1.5 Tbsp of butter to each packet, dividing it over the shrimp and asparagus. Season with salt & pepper.
  • Pull the long edges of the foil sheets together and crimp. Then roll and crimp the sides. Do not wrap too tight, as you want the heat to circulate inside.
  • To Grill: Preheat grill to medium-high heat (400-425 degrees F). Place each packet sealed-side upward, and grill for 9-10 minutes or until shrimp has cooked through.

    To Cook Over Campfire: Pre-light the campfire and let it burn down to a low fire. Place grill grate over the campfire (the packets should be above the flames). Place each packet sealed-side up on the grate. Cook time depends on the fire, so you must check the shrimp after several minutes and remove it once it’s cooked through.
  • Carefully unwrap and serve each packet with two wedges of lemon for individuals to squeeze their desired amount of lemon juice on top.



  • Land O Lakes Garlic & Herb Butter Spread is SO versatile! Use it on meat, veggies, and garlic bread.
