A video of a Shrimp Boil Foil Packs recipe kept popping up in my Facebook timeline a couple of weeks ago so I’ve decided to try making it myself. It looked really good and trust me when I say they taste even better. Scott and I both had 2 foil packs each. He was actually kind of worried what I was going to feed him at first 😁. He was instructed to grill the foil packs so that’s what he did.
By the way, the recipe from Creme de la Crumb said to use Old Bay seasoning but I used Creole instead. It also said to use andouille sausage but the truth is when I shopped for my ingredients I was going by memory of the video. I didn’t actually list the exact ingredients. I did get the shrimp right that’s for sure, HAH! In any event, my version still turned out delicious.
Grilled Shrimp Sausage Corn & Potatoes Foil Packs
- 1 med potatoes quartered, par-boiled
- 3 ears corn on the cob husked, boiled
- 1 pack kielbasa sausage sliced
- 1 pack jumbo shrimp thawed and peeled
- water for parboiling
- 1 1/2 stick butter divided (1/2 is melted)
- 3-4 tbsp creole seasoning (Old Bay)
- foil sheets (12x12)
- lemon divided
- Wash the potatoes thoroughly. Slice in quarters. Chop the corn into thirds then chop again lengthwise. Boil in water for 10 minutes. While that's boiling, peel the shrimp and slice the sausage.
- Once the potatoes and corn are boiled, drain the water and transfer into a large bowl. Add the sausage and shrimp. Drizzle the melted butter(1/2 stick), juice of 1/2 lemon, and sprinkle creole seasoning. Carefully stir everything together. Add more seasoning if necessary.
- Divide between the foil sheets. Fold the sides upwards then fold again plus the short sides to secure the packs. Grill 8-10 minutes in low-medium heat. Flip to grill for another 5 minutes.
Melt the remaining half stick of butter. Serve with lemon wedge. Drizzle the lemon wedge plus more melted butter on top. Be careful when you open the foil pack because it’s steaming hot. This is definitely perfect for summer grilling or during winter by baking the foil packs in the oven. Enjoy!
