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?
