Here's what you'll need for the Shrimp Boil Foil Packets:


  • 1 ½ pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 pound baby red potatoes, halved
  • 4 ears corn, each cut into 4 pieces
  • 1 (12 oz) package smoked sausage, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • Lemon wedges, for serving

Now, let's get started on this flavorful recipe:

Step 1: Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. If you prefer, you can also use an oven preheated to 425°F (220°C).

Step 2: In a large bowl, combine the melted butter, minced garlic, Old Bay seasoning, and chopped parsley. Mix everything together until well combined.

Step 3: Prepare four sheets of heavy-duty aluminum foil, approximately 18 inches long each.

Step 4: Divide the potatoes, corn pieces, sliced sausage, and shrimp evenly among the four sheets of foil. Arrange them in the center of each foil sheet.

Step 5: Drizzle the butter and seasoning mixture over the shrimp, potatoes, corn, and sausage in each foil packet. Make sure the ingredients are well-coated with the flavorful mixture.

Step 6: Fold the foil over the ingredients to create a packet, sealing it tightly. Make sure there are no openings for steam to escape.

Step 7: Place the foil packets on the grill grates or in the preheated oven. If using a grill, cook for approximately 12-15 minutes. If using an oven, bake for about 20-25 minutes. The shrimp should be pink and opaque, the potatoes tender, and the corn cooked through.

Step 8: Carefully open the foil packets, being cautious of the hot steam. Serve the Shrimp Boil Foil Packets with lemon wedges for an extra burst of tangy flavor.

Now, take a moment to appreciate the enticing aroma that fills the air as you unveil your perfectly cooked Shrimp Boil Foil Packets. The combination of succulent shrimp, flavorful sausage, tender potatoes, and sweet corn is a seafood lover's dream come true.
