Tasty Tuesday: Low Country Boil in Foil #Recipe

It is finally warming up outside! (At least, it is in North Carolina.) To me, when I think about warmer weather, I start breaking out my tried and true, go-to recipes. I found the perfect easy weeknight feast a few years back - A Cajun low country boil that you can make in foil packets in the oven, or alternatively, on the grill. This meal is great to feed just a few people, but can also feed a crowd!

Here's what you need:

  1. 16-20 ct Medium shrimp (deveined, can leave the tails on) (defrosted)
  2. 3-4 quartered red skinned potatoes 
  3. 1-2 ears of corn on the cob (halved)
  4. 1/2 rope Andouille sausage, sliced into 1/2 inch pieces
  5. 1/2 lemon
  6. Plenty of Old Bay Seasoning


  1. Preheat oven or grill to 425° F
  2. Spread out your foil (always a good idea to double layer the foil to make the packet!), evenly distribute thawed shrimp, chopped potatoes, corn, sausage onto foil.
  3. Roll the ends of the foil up to close up the packet.
  4. Sprinkle entire packet with optional salt and pepper, Old Bay Seasoning, a bit of olive oil, and the juice of 1/2 a lemon.
  5. Close the top of the foil packet.
  6. Cook for 20-30 minutes, or until shrimp is pink and potatoes are soft.
