Shrimp Boil Foil Packs

Next, on lazy people’s guide to fun cooking, I have shrimp boil! I made this couple of months ago during one of those colder days in Minnesota. I was tired of snow and the continuous below zero temperatures in April! I wanted to feel like summer. I wanted to be outside! So one of those “I am sick of this snow” weekends, I experimented making shrimp boil in aluminum foil using the conventional oven! I am pretty surprised by how easy it was to make and how good it turned out. I am not a chef by any means. Anyhow, I have been wanting to share this recipe for a long time. So here it is Shrimp Boil Foil Packs! You be the judge and let me know what you think!

Here is what you will need:

  • 1 lb uncooked shrimps
  • 2 ears of corn cut into 3-4 pieces each
  • 1 lb Andouille sausage cut into small slices
  • Baby potatoes, I used about 1/2 lbs
  • 1 large red onion, cut into quarters
  • 2  lemons; cut one into thin slices; set aside the second one
  • Fresh rosemary
  • Sea Salt
  • Fresh black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning
  • 2-3 tablespoons Olive oil
  • Garlic lobes (optional)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

In a bowl mix all the ingredients including the sliced lemons. Squeeze half a lemon into the mix.

Divide the mixture into aluminum sheets and seal it from all sides. I made 4 packs.

Place it inside the oven and cook for about 20-25 minutes. Once it is done, just place each unopened pack into separate plates and eat it straight from the foil!

Isn’t this the easiest shrimp boil recipe ever?
