Grilled Sausage & Shrimp Foil Packets

Monday, July 10, 2017

It has been so hot in the afternoons here in WV . Summer is definitely in full swing. Yesterday was one of those lazy days when all my husband wanted to do was lay around, catch up on sleep and not even worry about dinner. He suggested we make these foil packets for the grill so we wouldn't have to heat up the kitchen. We make these often , but usually just with salt and pepper for seasoning. He added creole seasoning before we closed up the packets for grilling, and they were perfect. And the cleanup, super easy. My kind of dinner.

                                         Grilled Sausage & Shrimp Foil Packets

4 corn on the cob, each cut into thirds
8 -10 potatoes, washed and cut into fourths
1 lb raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 lb andouille sausage , cut into 1" rounds
1/4 c chicken broth
4 T butter, divided
creole seasoning , to taste ( I used Zatarin's brand)
salt and pepper, to taste

1. Preheat grill.
2. cut 4 pieces of heavy duty aluminum foil into 12"x 18" and lay each on a flat surface.
3. Evenly distribute the corn, potatoes, shrimp and sausage between the 4 squares. Dot each packet with 1 T butter , a drizzle or two of chicken broth, and salt, pepper and creole seasoning to taste.
4. Tightly fold up and seal the packets.
5. Grill for about 30-35 minutes, until the potatoes are tender and the sausage and shrimp are cooked through.
* Be careful opening the packets. steam will escape and it will be very hot!
