Foiled Shrimp Boil Dinner

My FB Friend sent this one to us and I thought I'd share it with everyone. :tup:

Shrimp Boil Foil Packs
Prep time
10 mins
Cook time
40 mins
Total time
50 mins
Serves: 4
Ingredients
1 pound shrimp, peeled and de-veined
2 ears of corn on the cob, husked
½ pound andouille sausage
1 pound baby red potatoes OR baby yellow potatoes
3 tablespoons old bay seasoning OR homemade seasoning (see note)
salt and pepper, to taste
3 teaspoons minced garlic
juice of ½ lemon, plus lemon wedges for serving
3 tablespoons, melted + ½ cup butter, divided
chopped fresh parsley, for topping
Instructions
Chop corn into thirds, then chop each third in half lengthwise. Chop potatoes into 2 inch pieces. Boil corn and potatoes for 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.
In a large bowl combine shrimp, sausage, corn, and potatoes. Stir together melted 3 tablespoons butter, Old Bay seasoning, garlic, juice from half a lemon, and salt and pepper to taste and pour over shrimp, sausage, and veggies. Stir to coat.
Divide between four 12x12 inch sheets of aluminum foil. Fold edges of foil up around the food to create a closed packet.
Cook on preheated grill over medium-high heat for 8-10 minutes on one side, then flip and cook another 5-6 minutes on the second side. Alternately, you can bake the packets at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes until corn is tender and shrimp are pink and fully cooked.
While packets are cooking, melt remaining butter in a medium sauce pan over medium-high heat. Once melted, continue to stir gently over medium heat for 3-4 minutes longer until color changes from pale yellow to a golden amber (but be careful not to burn it).
Serve shrimp boil packs topped with chopped parsley, lemon wedges for squeezing, and browned butter for drizzling over the top or dipping.

Notes
Homemade Old Bay Seasoning: whisk together 1 tablespoon celery salt, 1 teaspoon paprika, ½ teaspoon black pepper, ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper, ¼ teaspoon dry mustard, ⅛ teaspoon each allspice, cloves, and a pinch of ground ginger.

think I'll do something similar next week - - - right now I"m trying to survive having my youngest Step-sons BD Party here tomorrow - - - - the resident Menu Monster here is about to kill me with ideas that "your truly" has to chop, clean and prepare, but, after all, it's her baby boy :whiteflag: :chef: :banghead:

welp, I done d'it and Lawdy was it good - - - - took castiron chris' suggestion and threw in some extra veggies that weren't in the menu above and I also went very heavy on Suckle Busters Cajun Seasoning :tup: all of those decisions were made after the Wiffy said she wanted two microwave corn dogs - - - - it then became MY LUNCH FIXINS :chef:

Cabbage would be great in there, Pard, as would Brussel Sprouts (mini-cabbages) - - - matter of fact I think I'll sub brussel sprouts for the broc and cali next time - - - snow peas might do well also :dont:

Wifey picked up some sauce the other day called Yo soy La sriracha or something like that which is kinda like terriaki but with a little heat at the end. We ate it on some poke chops the other night but now I am thinking about a shrimp packet with some veggies that would lend a more asian style of dish with that sauce. Might be kind of good. :idea: :idea:
