Shrimp boil


  • 1 lb smoked turkey sausage
  • 28 peeled shrimp
  • 4 ears of corn
  • 4 red potatoes
  • 1/2 lb fresh green beans
  • 1 sweet onion
  • 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 chicken/vegetable broth
  • 1-2 Zatarain’s Crab and Shrimp Boil pre-seasoned seasoning packet (depending on desired level of spice)
  • salt and pepper
  • aluminum foil


  1. Heat your grill (or oven) to 400.
  2. Quarter your onion, lemon, and potatoes, cut your corn into thirds, and slice the sausage.
  3. Evenly distribute the ingredients into four foil packets. For added flavor you can sear the sausage in a hot skillet until just brown and then add it to your packet.
  4. Drizzle 1/8 cup of olive oil and 1/8 cup broth in each pouch, mix in 1/4-1/2 of the seasoning packet and stir until ingredients are evenly coated. Salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Seal each foil pouch tightly by securing all the edges over one another and place over a hot grill for 30 minutes, flipping halfway through. Cook until the potatoes are soft and serve.
  6. You can add a special twist to your meal by serving the boil over brown rice or with crostini.
