Shrimp Boil Foil Packets

Makes 4 Servingsimage

1 ½ lb large shrimp, peeled and deveined
4 cooked andouille sausage, sliced thinly (if you don’t have andouille, use any cooked sausage)
2 ears corned, cut into 4 pieces per cob
1 lb baby red potatoes, parboiled and halved
2 TBSP olive oil plus more for drizzling
4 tsp cajun seasoning (recipe below)
2 TBSP fresh parsley leaves, chopped (optional)

Cajun Seasoning (can be halved - makes alot)
6 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons of salt
2 tablespoons ground black pepper
2 tablespoons ground white pepper
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons onion powder
1 tablespoon dried thyme
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper

Mix all cajun seasoning spices in a mason jar and shake well to combine. Set aside. (This is spicy so adjust the amount of cayenne pepper to your personal taste)

Preheat gas or grill to medium heat.

Cut four sheets of foil, about 12 inches long (I doubled mine and used 2 sheets of foil per packet). In a large boil, mix all ingredients except parsley.  Divide evenly between sheets of foil. Drizzle with a little extra olive oil.

Fold over the sides of the foil to cover food and seal completely.

Place sealed foil packets on grill, close cover, and grill until just cooked through…about 15 - 20 minutes.

Serve immediately, garnish with parsley, if desired.

Enjoy! :)
