How to Make Shrimp Boil Packets

Shrimp Boil Foil Pouch (makes 3 pouches)

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 30 minutes


  • 1 lb of peeled shrimp

  • 1 13 oz package of Cajun andouille sausage (or your choice)

  • 8 red potatoes quartered

  • 3 ears of corn


  • 1 stick of butter

  • 2 tablespoons of minced garlic

  • 1 tablespoon of old bay seasoning

  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice


1. Melt the butter and add the lemon juice, old bay and garlic. Mix well.

2. Husk the corn and chop into 1 1/2” pieces.

3. Cut the sausage into 1” pieces.

4. Place the shrimp, sausage, corn and potatoes in a mixing bowl and pour sauce over it. Mix it well.

5. Place the ingredients onto 3 foil sheets. Double the foil for durability. Close the pouches and place on the grill.

6. Let your shrimp boil packets cook for 20-30 minutes until potatoes can be pierced with a fork.

7. Give your packets a few minutes to cool to the touch, unwrap and eat!

We love how you can easily use the foil packet as a bowl, no need to dirty any dishes for this recipe!

Can I Bake my Shrimp Boil Packets?

Yes! You can easily bake your packets in the oven. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and bake for about 15 minutes. How great is it that you can still make this recipe on rainy days or even a cold day in the winter when you crave the warmth of summer.

What to Serve with your Shrimp Boil Packets

If you want to serve something along side your shrimp boil, some of our favorites are:

  • Rice

  • Crusty bread to dip in the lemon butter

  • Cole slaw

We doubt you will have any leftovers, but if you find that you do, store them in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days. Reheat in the microwave.

Any while you have that fire going, might we suggest a gooey s’mores to finish off the day?
