These corn foil packets recipe is a Mexican classic made with corn, peppers, and shrimp grilled together and drizzled with a flavorful Mexican cream.
Preheat a gas or charcoal grill, or a pan over high heat.
Cut four sheets of foil, about 10×12-inches long. Combine the shrimp, corn, bell peppers, and onions in a large bowl.
Add the olive oil, garlic, taco seasoning, brown sugar, lime juice, cilantro, and cumin; gently toss to combine.
Divide shrimp mixture among the four pieces of foil, arranging the ingredients on the center of each piece. Fold up all 4 sides of each foil packet, covering completely and sealing the packets closed.
Place foil packets on the grill and cook until just cooked through for about 6 to 8 minutes on one side.
Flip, and continue to grill on the other side for a further 6 minutes, or until the corn is tender and shrimp are fully cooked.
While the packs are cooking, mix together the mayo, sour cream, and garlic until thoroughly mixed through.
Once cooked, drizzle the corn with the cream and top with the cheese and chili powder.
Garnish packs with the cilantro or parsley and serve packets immediately with lime wedges, tortillas, rice, or other sides.
