Cajun Shrimp in Foil
The best thing about this recipe is it gives you so much room to play with. I’m thinking you could probably add anything to it, mix it in with the seasonings and still get an awesome dish.
One thing to note: I never really knew how difficult it was to cut an ear of corn. I have sliced three parts before I gave up. Shredded the rest and mixed it in. Haha!
I’m sure I’ll make this again! For sure you would too! Don’t forget, you can pin this for later!
•8-12 pieces corn on the cob
•4 full cobs cut in half or in thirds
•4 red potatoes, washed and cubed and quartered
•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, Tony Chachere’s brand is the best, to taste
•Salt and pepper, to taste
•Additional ingredients to try in a foil packet (optional, and to your taste)
➔ Heat grill to 400-degrees.
➔ You can do this in your oven at the same temperature.
➔ Microwave the potatoes for a few minutes to soften them before you put them in the oven.
➔ Evenly distribute corn, potatoes, shrimp, and sausage between 4 heavy-duty foil sheets (approximately 12×18 inches each).
➔ Drizzle melted butter and about 2 tablespoons of chicken broth over each foil packet.
➔ Season evenly and generously, to taste, with Cajun season.
Tips and Variations:
You can use any size of shrimp for this recipe, but larger shrimp will take longer to cook.
If you don’t have Cajun seasoning, you can make your own by combining paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, and thyme.
If you want to make this dish even spicier, add a pinch of cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes to the spice mixture.
You can also add other ingredients to the foil packets, such as sliced vegetables or cooked rice, to make a complete meal.
