Recipe

These Healthy Shrimp Boil Foil Packets are packed with shrimp, andouille sausage, red potatoes, green beans, mushrooms, and lots of Cajun seasoning for an easy and delicious dinner made on the grill or in the oven.

The first time I ever had a shrimp boil, I immediately fell in love. Growing up in New England, this was the southern version of my beloved clam bakes that I missed so much. And while recreating a New England clambake is almost impossible for a quick and easy weeknight meal, recreating a shrimp boil is actually surprisingly easy. All you need is some good Cajun seasoning, a lean Andouille chicken sausage, red potatoes, and some summer corn. I like to throw in some extra veggies to add some nutrients and then everything is tossed on the grill (or in the stove) for a delicious meal that's ready in under thirty minutes.

    Full of flavor and because of the packets, created an 'event' on a usually tired old weeknight.
