Shrimp Boil Foil Packets - Best Recipe


  • 2 lb raw jumbo shrimp
  • 1 andouille sausage, or chorizo (mild or spicy), sliced
  • 2 ears corn, peeled and quartered
  • 1 lb baby red potatoes, cut into 3/4-inch (2 cm) chunks
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Cajun seasoning
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Garnishes - optional

  • half lemon, freshly squeezed
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley, minced


  1. Preheat grill or oven to 425°F (218°C). Fill a medium saucepan halfway with water and bring to a boil.
  2. Boil the potato chunks and corn pieces for 5-7 minutes.
  3. On a work surface, cut 4 pieces of foil approximately 12 inches (30 cm) square.
  4. Distribute the shrimp, sausage, corn and potatoes across the middle of each piece of foil.
  5. Sprinkle Cajun seasoning on top and drizzle olive oil across the ingredients.
  6. Fold up the edges of each piece of foil into a packet, rolling and sealing the edges tightly. Take care to avoid puncturing the foil.
  7. Place the packets seam-side up on the grill or oven. Cook for 15 minutes or until the shrimp and potatoes are tender.
  8. Remove packets from heat and garnish with optional lemon juice, salt, pepper and parsley.
