Enjoy a classic shrimp boil at home or at the campground with our Make-Ahead Shrimp Packs! Prep ahead for a quick and delicious meal of shrimp, local Andouille sausage, and summer vegetables. Customize with your favorite vegetables and spice heat level. Don't have a grill? No problem, we have oven instructions too.


Step 1

Boil corn and potatoes for 8 minutes. Drain and set aside.

Step 2

In a large bowl, place the shrimp and sausage. Add the 4 Tbsp melted butter, Cajun Rub, and Seafood Seasoning. Toss to combine.

Step 3

In another large bowl, place zucchini, potatoes, corn, bell pepper, and asparagus. Add the 4 Tbsp melted butter, Creole seasoning, pepper and seasoning salt. Toss to combine.

Step 4

Cut 6 large (about 18x12-inch) pieces of heavy duty aluminum foil and place on counter.

Step 5

Mound the shrimp and sausage mixture in the center of each foil piece, dividing it evenly between the 6.

Step 6

Mound the vegetable mixture in center of foil, dividing it evenly between the 6.

Step 7

Bring the long edges to the center, then fold them over each other to make a seam in the center. Bring up the sides. Fold in the edges to seal. Avoid wrapping too tight to allow air circulation.

Step 8

To grill the packets, preheat an outdoor grill to medium high 400°. To bake, preheat the oven to 400°.

Step 9

Cook the packets on a preheated grill over medium-high heat for 8 minutes on one side, then flip and cook another 6 minutes on the second side, until the shrimp is cooked through and the vegetables are tender.

Step 10

To bake, place foil packs on a lined large baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes, flip and bake another 6 minutes.

Step 11

While packets are cooking, melt remaining 8 Tbsp butter in a medium sauce pan over medium-high heat. Continue stirring over medium heat for 3-4 minutes until color changes from pale yellow to a golden amber.

Step 12

Carefully remove shrimp foil packets from the grill or oven. Open foil packs and drizzle with melted butter. Top with chopped parsley and lemon wedges.
