Foil Shrimp Boil

Shrimp, andouille sausage, baby red potatoes, and slices of corn in foil.

Packed with shrimp, andouille sausage, corn, and baby potatoes, Foil Shrimp Boil is a quick dinner for your next grill or campfire cookout. It is easy to assemble ahead of time and cooks up quickly. These meal packets are also packed with flavor. 

For the best results, make sure to use heavy-duty foil, so the packets don’t rip while grilling. Fill the packets full, but make sure you can completely close the foil around the ingredients so you don’t lose any food while cooking. And, make sure to flip your packets halfway through cooking, so everything cooks evenly and the flavors get well distributed.

Though these packets are a full meal in themselves, you can always serve them with extra sides. Try a green salad, fresh-baked bread or cornbread, or a side of rice to soak up extra flavors.
