Easy Shrimp on the Beach

This recipe is one way to quickly prepare shrimp for easy transport to the beach!  
It is wonderful to eat and has an easy clean-up at the beach!   
It is our favorite for a light dinner at sunset on any beach!

10-12 small shrimp per serving (shelled, deveined & cleaned)
Fresh garlic – several cloves fore each serving 
Seasonings (of your choice: Cajun, salt, pepper or chili are options)
Tabasco sauce
Lemons – sliced 
White rice

To have ready to take to the beach:
Small grill, tongs, serving spoon, paper plates, plastic forks, drinks, etc.   

Before You Go:
Cut two foil squares for each serving that you are preparing.
On a counter, lay out one of each of the foil squares – saving 2nd sheet.   
In the center of each foil square place the 10-12 small shrimp.  Next place on the shrimp pile about 1-2 tablespoons of butter, seasonings as desired, squeeze the  lemon slices slightly over the shrimp and then lay them on the pile, add 2 cloves of garlic (after smashing each clove with a knife to release flavor). Sprinkle Tabasco sauce over each pile of shrimp.
Fold the foil over the pile completely Next, using 2nd foil square, lay folded foil face down on the 2nd foil square and fold over in such a way to tightly seal in the butter as it melts.
Place foil packets in a small ice chest for your trip to the beach.

Next: Prepare rice as directed on package at home. Keep warm in covered pan with a large towel wrapped tightly around it.

Now you are ready!  Head to your favorite beach. Light your grill.  Grill the packets, moving them around the grill so as to cook evenly. Depending on the fire, it may take 10-15 minutes.  Open one foil packet to check for "doneness".

Serve the shrimp over the rice.   
Enjoy the sunset.
