Cajun Style Grill Foil Packet Recipe

You will love grilling up these Cajun Shrimp Foil Packets. The Cajun flavors give the shrimp, sausage and corn so much flavor, and there is NO MESS!

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Camping/Grilling
Servings: 4 packets

8-12 pieces corn on the cob, 4 full cobs cut in half or in thirds
4 red potatoes, washed and cubed
20-30 uncooked shrimp, peeled or not, it's up to you
1 pound smoked sausage, cut into chunks
melted butter, or olive oil, to taste
1/2 cup chicken broth, you may not need that much
Cajun/Creole seasoning, we like to use Tony Chachere's brand, to taste
salt and pepper, to taste

More ingredients to try in a foil packet (optional, and to your taste)

Italian sausage
chicken (cut in bite size pieces)
bell peppers
red onions


Heat grill to 400-degrees.  You can do this in your oven at the same temperature.

Evenly distribute corn, potatoes, shrimp, and sausage between 4 heavy-duty foil sheets (approximately 12x18 inches each).

Drizzle melted butter and about 2 tablespoons chicken broth over each foil packet.
Season evenly and generously, to taste, with Cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper.

Tightly seal foil packets by folding up the sides over the contents and tightly folding up the ends over the seam.
Grill 30-40 minutes or until potatoes are tender, flipping once half-way through

Be careful opening the packets to check for doneness, the steam inside is VERY hot!

Share and Enjoy!
