Everyone loves a great seafood boil but it makes a lot of food and you are standing around a pot for 25 minutes. This is a great alternative with all the flavors condensed into a foil pack that you can put on the grill.  You’re going to love how you can prep this in no time and then enjoy sitting outside while it cooks without heating up your kitchen. Prep time and cooking time combined is only about 30 minutes, so if you’re in a hurry and need a quick meal that everyone will be raving about, give this a try.

I don’t know about you, but being able to customize dinner depending on peoples likes and dislikes is a plus in my house.  Since shrimp doesn’t take long to cook, you’ll need to pre-cook corn and new potatoes if you’re going to add them in.  To do this, I just placed them in the microwave for a few minutes. I cooked the corn for 1 minute and it was just perfect.  I don’t think it needs potatoes but it will be a more traditional shrimp boil if you have some new potatoes. I used pre-cooked anduille sausage which is a great flavor enhancer.  A little goes a long way.  Whatever you choose you will coat with Old Bay, (my favorite), butter and garlic and then grill the packs just until the shrimp is cooked.

The best part is the brown butter poured over the packs at the end.  I made this over the weekend and had two packs left-over.  They were so good that I placed the left-over packs in the toaster oven and ate these for leftovers.  I was surprised at how good they were warmed up.
