Shrimp Boil Foil Packs

What I love about this shrimp boil recipe is the seasonings you use to add tons of flavor to your meats and veggies.

How To Make Shrimp Boil Packs

Step 1: You will pre-cook your potato and corn in a pot on the stove. You will want your potatoes to get softened so they fully cook.

Step 2: Add all your seasonings and items in a bowl toss with the melted butter and place into the foil packets as directed in the recipe card below.

Step 3: Cook on the grill or even in the oven. And once done open the packet and serve up!

Can I Add In Different Vegetables To Foil Packets

You are more than welcome to add in other vegetables to your foil packets. Mushrooms, green beans and more would work.

Just place your veggies in the mixture to stir up and toss in your packets.

How Do You Make A Foil Pack

You can make your foil packs as small or as large as you would like. I try to aim for a 12×12 size.

Then you will fill up part of the bottom and leave room to fold up the top so the packet is fully sealed.

You want it to in sense steam your ingredients, so having a tight seal is important.

What to Serve with Foil Packet Dinners

Essentially you can serve your foil packets as a meal in one or even pair with your favorite sides.

I love pairing with cornbread, dinner rolls, garlic bread, or even something like a coleslaw or cucumber and onions.

Feel free to pair with any or all your favorite sides.
