Shrimp Boil Foil Packet(s)

I made these about 2 months ago and served with a side of black beans….talk about delicious! You may want to add some cheddar biscuits…yum!



  • 1 1/2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 (12.8-ounce) package smoked andouille sausage, thinly sliced or any sausage (Hillshire Polska Kielbasa, Smoked Sausage, Beef Smoked, Turkey Smoked) I used Hillshire Smoked.
  • 2-4 ears corn, each cut crosswise into 4 pieces
  • 1 pound baby red potatoes, halved
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 teaspoons cajun seasoning (I did not have cajun seasoning on hand so I used Old Bay seasoning and it worked I think better!)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves or  1 1/2 tablespoon dried parsley


  1. Preheat a gas or charcoal grill over high heat.
  2. Cut four sheets of foil, about 12-inches long. Divide shrimp, sausage, corn and potatoes into 4 equal portions and add to the center of each foil in a single layer.
  3. Fold up all 4 sides of each foil packet. Add olive oil, cajun seasoning, salt and pepper, to taste; gently toss to combine. Fold the sides of the foil over the shrimp, covering completely and sealing the packets closed.
  4. Place foil packets on the grill and cook until just cooked through, about 12-15 minutes.*
  5. Served immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.

*This can also be baked for 15-17 minutes at 425 degrees F.

**I baked mine in the oven wrapped in one large foil packet.  Also, I was worried about the potatoes not getting fully cooked so I boiled them a few minutes just to make sure – then mixed everything together.
