Shrimp, corn, potatoes, and sausages with Cajun seasonings in foil packets are amazing! They are like gifts that when you open, you just want to dig straight in. Crazy delicious, super simple, and always a blast either grilled or baked.


1 lb raw jumbo shrimp, 21-25 count or similar
1 andouille sausage, or chorizo (mild or spicy), sliced
2 ears corn, shucked and cut into quarters
1 lb baby red potatoes, halved, or larger potatoes cut into 1” pieces
1 1/2 tbsp Cajun seasoning
2 tbsp olive oil

Garnishes (optional):

lemon, freshly squeezed
fresh parsley, minced

How to make Shrimp Foil Packets

Step 1: Ready the grill or oven. Preheat either to 425 degrees F.

Step 2: For about 10 minutes, boil the chunks of potato and corn, then transfer to a plate to cool.

Step 3: In the meantime, slice four 12 x 12-inch pieces of foil and place them shiny side facing up on a work surface.

Step 4: Between the pieces of foil, evenly distribute the shrimp, sausage, corn, and potatoes. Arrange them in a pile in the middle of the foils and sprinkle with Cajun seasoning and a drizzle of olive oil across.

Step 5: Lift the two edges of the foil that is opposite to each, bring them together, and folding down half an inch so they hold. To seal tightly, roll the two edges up. Make sure to be very careful not to pierce the foil.

Step 6: On the grill or oven rack, place the packets seam-side up. Close the lid/door and cook for about 15 minutes until the shrimps are pink and the potatoes are fork-tender. To a serving plate, transfer the packets when done, then open the seams to allow the steam to escape.

Step 7: Before serving, garnish with lemon and parsley if desired. Enjoy!
