The traditional shrimp boil is converted to an easy peasy foil packet dinner option.
Packed with shrimp, andouille sausage, corn on the cob, and baby red potatoes, you have a full meal right in these packets, packed with so much flavor and just the right amount of heat. You also have a grill option or oven option. You can’t go wrong either way.
And the best part comes in two – there’s zero clean-up and you can also prep this ahead of time. Win and win.
