4.Place foil packet and corn on hot grill rack. Cover and cook shrimp packet 8 minutes or until shrimp turn opaque throughout, turning packet once halfway through cooking; cook corn 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown, turning frequently.

5.Cut corn from cobs. With scissors, cut an X in top of foil packet, then carefully pull back foil to open. With slotted spoon, transfer shrimp mixture to medium bowl; add corn and remaining 1 tablespoon cilantro, and toss to combine.
