Prep: 10min

Total: 25min


  • 1 1/2 lb. large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 smoked andouille sausages, thinly sliced
  • 2 ears corn, each cut crosswise into 4 pieces
  • 1 lb. red bliss potatoes, chopped into 1-in pieces
  • 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. Old Bay seasoning
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp. freshly chopped parsley
  • 1 lemon, sliced into thin wedges
  • 4 tbsp. butter


  1. Preheat grill over high heat, or preheat oven to 425°. Cut 4 sheets of foil about 12 inches long. Divide shrimp, garlic, sausage, corn, and potatoes evenly over the foil sheets. Drizzle with oil, then add Old Bay seasoning and season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss gently to combine. Top each mixture with parsley, lemon and a tablespoon of butter each.
  2. Fold foil packets crosswise over the shrimp boil mixture to completely cover the food. Roll top and bottom edges to seal them closed.
  3. Place foil packets on grill and cook until just cooked through, about 15 to 20 minutes (or transfer to oven and bake for 20 minutes). 


Is shrimp better boiled or grilled?

Cut 4 pieces of foil that are about 12 inches long. Preheat grill to high heat. Fold foil packets crosswise over the shrimp boil mixture to completely cover the food. Place foil packets on grill. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes, or transfer to oven. Bake for 20 minutes.

Why do you put ice in a shrimp boil?

Grilling just brings out more depth of flavor with a hint of smokiness to it and gives it a nice texture with those sought-after charred grill marks. It also only takes 20 minutes to cook. If you enjoy a good classic shrimp boil, you’ll love them grilled.
