These seafood foil packets come together quickly and grill up in under 15 minutes. They are bursting with bright, lemon butter flavor and make for a light and tasty summer dinner!


  • 4 Tinfoil Sheets, (18-20″ long each)
  • 1 lb cod, cut into 4 equal portions
  • 1/2 lb bay scallops
  • 1/2 lb shrimp
  • 1 large bunch asparagus
  • 20 cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 Tbsp lemon zest (1 large lemon)
  • 2 Tbsp white wine (optional)
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges (optional, for garnish)


  1. Preheat the grill to medium heat.
  2. Lay out four tinfoil sheets on a flat surface. Evenly distribute the asparagus between the sheets, and follow suit with the cod, shrimp, bay scallops, and cherry tomatoes.
  3. Melt the butter and stir in lemon zest and white wine. Spoon butter mixture evenly the seafood.
  4. Pull edges of tinfoil together and close up, leaving a pocket of air to allow for steam to gather (see picture above).
  5. Place of grill for 15-18 minutes, until all seafood is cooked through. Remove from grill and open carefully, as the packets will have hot steam! Enjoy!
